Don’t just pour your Rice Krispies into a bowl with milk. Instead, use this delicious breakfast cereal to create fantastic breakfast recipes for your family, such as cinnamon French toast.
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies recently worked with real moms and five parenting experts to develop the “Childhood Is Calling” report. This report is dedicated to helping families take a step back from busy schedules and spend more time together.
The report includes tips for moms, dads and even grandparents on ways to connect with their children. One of the easiest ways to connect and create lasting memories is by cooking together! They have some great recipes on their website, ChildhoodIsCalling.com, that incorporate Rice Krispies cereal into very delicious dishes.
