Celebrate Whole Grains Month with Post Great Grains {A Feature}

Welcome to September, and Happy Labor Day! Did you know that September is also National Whole Grains Month? Don't feel bad, I didn't either until my friends over at Post Great Grains filled me in, and I'm more than happy to celebrate with them!

And what a better way to enjoy an entire month dedicated to whole grains than with a new fun recipe including Great Grains cereal? Did you know that each Great Grains variety has at least 30g of whole grains per serving and is an excellent source of fiber? Just what you're looking for in a breakfast to fuel your entire day! Or even better, take what you love from your cereal bowl, and experience it in a whole new, unique way? 

This recipe can be enjoyed for breakfast, a midday snack or even a nutritional dessert. Oh, and did I mention, it's super simple too??!! Give your kids something fun they will gobble down before the school bus comes, or give them something to look forward to after a full day of classes. Packing lunches for school and/or work? These would be great for that too! So versatile, you will find a hundred different ways to use it, each more tasty than the last. 

Whole grains are something we are all looking to add more of into our diets, and with yummy recipes like this, and delicious cereal from Post Great Grains, it's so easy to do just that!

Banana Crunch Parfait
1 cup Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch cereal 
1 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
1 cup honey
1 medium banana, sliced 
1 can (20 oz.) pineapple chunks, drained

Spoon half of the yogurt evenly into six parfait glasses; top with layers of half each of the bananas, pineapple, cereal and remaining whipped topping. Repeat layers. Drizzle honey over final layer.
