[one beat, two beats]
Dude, this Jersey girl and self-proclaimed professional dork got to hang out with U.S. Olympians! You can catch up by reading more about:
- Day 1: 100 Days until the 2012 Summer Olympics kick-off event.
- Join me on a walking tour of the U.S. Olympic training facility in Chula Vista, CA.
- My interview with U.S. Olympic Gymnastic Team Gold Medalist Jordyn Wieber's Mom, Rita Wieber.
TODAY: With the 2012 Summer Olympics in London nearly over and the U.S. winning a total of 71 medals to date (WHOOT!) I am very excited to be able to introduce you to the Champions of Great Starts Bloggers, along with some important facts about cereal nutrition.
I'm having a blast working with the Champions of Great Starts Bloggers in sharing stories on how Kellogg's is the cereal I grew up with and now is the breakfast that starts my family's day off right.

Still, as a mom of 3 teens and a precocious 11 year-old, I often times worry if my kids are getting the proper nutrition they need as young adults -- most especially, in the morning -- with everyone rushing to get out of the house and my kitchen quickly becomes a drive-thru window.
In our house, moderation has always played a key role in attempting to maintain a healthy perspective on our relationship with food. My husband, Garth (not his real name) and I try to remain vigilant in keeping sugar, salt and artificial colors and flavors to an absolute minimum.

In the meantime, we're going to squeeze as much Olympic viewing in as possible until the closing ceremony on August 12th (that's this Sunday!) when acclaimed film director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot) will no doubt help us to remember the London 2012 Olympic Games as nothing less than AWESOME!!!
