Whether finding creative ways to help fuel their kids in the morning or coming up with smart snacks to help keep their families energized during the day, moms are constantly in search of easy ways to develop healthy habits with their families. To help mom support her family’s active and healthy lifestyles, Kellogg’s® is rolling out Tips for a Great Start: a 30-day program featuring Team Kellogg’s, a group of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls, and U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) dietitians.

Starting today, moms can visit Kelloggs.com/GreatStartsTips for personal stories and ideas that Team Kellogg’s athletes – including Noelle Pikus-Pace, U.S. Skeleton athlete and one of the fastest moms on ice, and U.S. Olympic Figure Skating legend and mom Kristi Yamaguchi – live by when training and at home with their families.

“At Kellogg’s, we believe that From Great Starts Come Great Things®, so we are excited to bring moms 30 days of tips from top athletes who share our belief in the power of breakfast,” said Noel Geoffroy,  Senior Vice President, Marketing & Innovation for Kellogg’s U.S. Morning Foods. “Kellogg’s cereal plays an important role in helping both athletes and families alike to get a great start to the day.”

Through quick video clips, printable tip sheets and slideshows, Team Kellogg’s and USOC nutrition experts share ideas that moms can use with their own families, including:  

  • Games and activities to keep families moving, even in the worst weather
  • How top athletes form – and stick to – healthy habits
  • The best midday snacks for both athletes and families
  • Recipes that call for ingredients already in the pantry, including favorite Kellogg’s cereals

“As a mother of two and someone who travels to competitions with my entire family, I can definitely relate to moms on-the-go and know how important it is to help keep my family energized,” said Pikus-Pace. “A bowl of Kellogg’s cereal with milk for breakfast plays an important role in my family’s health, so I’m excited to work with other members of Team Kellogg’s to show moms how easy it is to give their own families a great start.”
