Family nights seem to be few and far between with school, sporting events and all the other activities our son participates in. I am sure many of you feel the same way but it’s important to spend quality time with our kids. With the weather getting cooler family nights in tend to get a little easier although it seems like we are super busy year round. A great way to spend those family nights together is with Post cereal and Nintendo.

Post Grape Nuts

As a family when spending time indoors we love Grape-Nuts®, a delicious fruit salad (I’ll share the recipe below) and our Nintendo Switch. Who says cereal has to be eaten for breakfast? It’s the perfect, quick snack we all enjoy and I love having a fresh fruit salad to pair it with any time of the day!

Nintendo Switch is the perfect answer for family night. Nintendo Switch combines the power of a home console with the mobility of a handheld. So you get more time to play the games you love, however you like. The system comes packaged with the main unit, left and right Joy-Con with a Joy-Con wrist strap for each. Therefore, it’s a multi-player experience right out of the box for your kids/family! Great for Super Mario Odyssey.

Super Mario Odyssey will be perfect for family night! You can embark on a cap-tivating, globe-trotting adventure in Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch available October 27th! You’ll get to join Mario on a massive, globe-trotting 3D adventure and use his incredible new abilities to collect Moons so you can power up your airship, the Odyssey, and rescue Princess Peach from Bowser’s wedding plans! This sandbox-style 3D Mario adventure is packed with secrets and surprises, and with Mario’s new moves like cap throw, cap jump, and capture, you’ll have fun and exciting gameplay experiences unlike anything you’ve enjoyed in a Mario game! Mario games have always been a favorite for my family.

Does your family know all the great Post cereals? They offer a great variety! Here’s some of them below:

Honey Bunches of Oats® is the perfect combination of crispy and sweet flakes, plus crunchy clusters, plus a touch of honey. It’s a cereal that adds up to a mouthful of joy because of the mix of flavors it has.

With over 35 flavors, Malt-O-Meal® has something for every taste bud in the family.

Honeycomb® is made with honey and the big pieces are as perfect for snacking as they are in your cereal bowl. Sample the big honey taste!

Golden Crisp® is a satisfyingly sweet and crunchy puffed wheat cereal that puts the fun in breakfast.

Post Alpha-Bits® has the great taste and alphabet delight that kids and moms L-O-V-E.

Since 1897, Grape-Nuts has been a morning staple people love. It’s power-packed nutrition with a satisfying crunch. It is also whole grain, non GMO, an excellent source of fiber and a vegan product.
