    Cute!!!! I don’t eat cereal anymore after reading about the “Wheat Belly.” But, I think that Kashi has solid heart-shaped cereal. I think it’s heart to heart. It was pretty yummy….but a flat tummy is even better :D

    Very cute! I love your pictures. I’m not a big fan of oat cereal, but love the little heart shapes. I think I’d skip the cereal, and go straight for the chocolates!
