It gets us going in the morning and today, we say thank you. Happy National Cereal Day!

Today, nearly half of America starts its morning by pouring a bowl (or two) of cereal, according to NationalCerealDay.com. Hard to believe it all started in the 1800’s as a remedy for poor diets packed with protein, alcohol, and caffeine.

We buy 2.7 billion boxes of cereal each year; that’s enough to wrap around Earth 13 times.

Raise your spoons today in a toast to National Cereal Day!
