I like hot and cold cereals and will often eat a bowl either with milk, or dry, as a snack rather than reaching for cookies, crackers or other typical snack items foods.
Original Cheerios were a family staple when my kids were little. Son # 1 enjoyed Honey Nut Cheerios
when General Mills introduced them in the late 1970s.& Son # 2 is allergic to almonds, and was not able to eat the cereal as a child.
Honey Nut Cheerios have never been my own first choice for snacking, I tend to go more for plain cheerios, or little shredded wheat squares that are not sweetened. As one of the cereals I buy for filling Osage County First Grade cooky jars- the recycled jars in which powdered coffee creamers are found, Honey Nut Cheerios are quite popular with Little People.
Now that the almond in the cereal is flavoring and is not actual nuts I do not worry that a child in the class may be allergic to the nut, on the other hand for children who are allergic to other flavorings caution should be exercised.

Honey Nut Cheerios appear much as do original Cheerios in that they are small round cereal donuts. Made from whole grains and fortified with a number of vitamins and minerals Honey Nut Cheerios with milk provides a good bowl of breakfast or snack.
I find Honey Nut Cheerios at our local Pyramid grocery store, and find the product available from Amazon as a multi pack. Now that the almond is flavoring and is not actual nuts I often add almonds or pecans to my bowl of cereal. I am not allergic to almonds or pecans and enjoy the added crunch.
Now grown; Son #1 continues to enjoy Honey Nut Cheerios
while Son #2 has never developed a taste for them.
Osage County First Grade earn goodies for their –cooky jars- during our morning instruction period. Our lunch period is early in the day, kids are hungry by mid afternoon.
The cooky jars are carried to reading offices for munching during DEAR reading in part to assuage the hunger and in part to instill a sense of comfort during reading time. I am truly troubled by statistics showing that during the past eight years the reading scores across America have gone up, and reading for pleasure has plummeted.
I am hopeful that reading to a cuddle friend while munching animal crackers or a handful of cereal will be a pleasant memory for Little People who will, I hope, become adults who enjoy reading with or without hugging a Garfield or chomping on cereal.
Parents send a variety of cereals, breakfast and nutrition type bars and cups of applesauce or jello for snack time. I often use snack time as a time for teaching manners, wait until all are served and the like as well as providing the cooky jars for munching during work periods. I don't worry that the kids will become fat, they don’t get that much cereal or fruit, and we do have a good PE program involving lots of physical activity in place at our school. Honey Nut Cheerios
are quite popular with Osage County First grade as they earn pieces of cereal for sitting as instructed, attending to lessons, answering questions, helping one another, and giving their best effort to the work at hand.
The kids treasure their goodies, share with one another during DEAR or work period and complain less that they are hungry by end of the school day. Happy to recommend.

As a teacher I appreciate the General Mills Box Tops for Education program which is now into its 12th year of helping schools earn the extra cash they need. Especially for small schools such as the one where I teach the program provides extra library books and other niceties the kids might otherwise not find at our school. From cereals to paper products, Each coupon is worth 10¢ to schools.
