Happy National Cereal Day!
The 7th of March is Cereal Day /
so we invited some friends to come over and play.
The table was set with all sorts of cereals /
with milk and with bowls and with other materials.
Older kids drank orange juice with champagne /
The younger ones had to drink their juice plain.
Boxes were opened and pieces were poured /
Three kinds of Cheerios were the first we explored.
There were wonderful smiles and rejoices of “yummy” /
As little round loops filled little round tummies.
Loops of all colors, fruit-flavored balls /
cinnamon squares… we sampled them all.
The children found every cereal delicious /
but one mother worried they weren’t that nutritious.
I told that mom something she didn’t know /
Most of these cereals are non-GMO.
That blew her mind, so I shattered her brain… /
all of these cereals are made with whole grains.
The children continued to eat with big grins /
and pieces of cereal stuck to their chins.
Once the bowls were all empty and gift bags were gifted /
I remembered a scene and my spirits were lifted.
A little girl eating with intense concentration /
with quite respect for this day in our nation.
Raise your spoons to the air and repeat what I say: /
All hail cereal! Happy #CerealDay!
Special thanks to General Mills for sending us a Cereal Day gift box with cereals and party favors which inspired us to hold this year’s party.
