March 7 - National Cereal Day

Good morning, cereal lovers! Today, we're diving spoon-first into a bowl of crunchy goodness because it's National Cereal Day! That's right, March 7th is dedicated to honoring one of the most beloved breakfast staples around the world – cereal.

The History of Cereal

Before we crunch into our favorite bowls, let's take a moment to appreciate the history behind this iconic breakfast food. Cereal has been a part of human diets for centuries, with early forms dating back to ancient civilizations. However, modern breakfast cereal as we know it today didn't emerge until the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

It was in the late 1800s that cereal pioneers like John Harvey Kellogg and C.W. Post began experimenting with flaked grains and creating the breakfast cereals we're familiar with today. Their inventions paved the way for the cereal industry to flourish, leading to the diverse array of options we have on our grocery store shelves today.

Ways to Celebrate National Cereal Day

Now that we know a bit about the history, let's get to the fun part – celebrating National Cereal Day! Here are some ideas to make the most out of this crunchy holiday:

1. Cereal Buffet: Set up a cereal buffet with an assortment of cereals, toppings like fruits, nuts, and chocolate chips, and different milk options. Let everyone customize their own cereal creation for a breakfast spread that's sure to satisfy.

2. Cereal Taste Test: Challenge yourself or gather some friends and family for a cereal taste test. Blindfolded or not, try to identify different cereals by taste alone. You might discover a new favorite!

3. DIY Cereal Bars: Get creative in the kitchen and make your own cereal bars using your favorite cereal, marshmallows, and other tasty add-ins. It's a fun and delicious way to enjoy cereal on the go.

4. Cereal Art: Use your favorite cereals to create edible works of art. Whether you're making a cereal mosaic or crafting cereal sculptures, let your imagination run wild and see what you can create.

5. Share the Joy: Spread the love by donating cereal to your local food bank or sharing a bowl with a friend. Breakfast is always better when shared with others.


National Cereal Day is a time to celebrate the simple pleasure of starting your day with a delicious bowl of cereal. Whether you prefer it crispy, crunchy, or soggy, there's no denying the comfort and nostalgia that comes with this breakfast favorite.

So, grab your favorite cereal, pour yourself a bowl, and let's raise our spoons to National Cereal Day!
