Save those crumbs from the bottom of the cereal bag! I love topping my yogurt with it to add some crunch! My favorite is from the Frosted Mini-Wheats, YUM!

Since the cereals you love are sugar loaded; be aware that's what you're adding to your yogurt. It turns a modestly healthy yogurt snack into candy.
It's especially true if you aren;t very careful about sifting out the few tablespoons of sugar that are in the bottom of every sugar loaded sereal bag. You could easily be DOUBLING THE CALORIES of your yogurt snack with very little nutrition to show for it.
It's a much healthier idea to use non-sugar loaded cereals which you can also mix with your bread crumbs for baking or frying foods; among other things.

Save Crumbs for a Topping

If you have left over crumbs from cookies and candy, or chips and flavored crackers, "rolling pin" them in a baggie. Sprinkle the sweet over ice cream and hot cereal, and the salty over soups, salads, and baked potatoes! Yummy!
