3 Grown-Up Ways to Serve Cereal at Your Event

By Anna Dunn, February 7, 2016

Rise and shine! To celebrate National Cereal Day on March 7, and to keep America’s obsession with all-day breakfast going strong (thanks McDonald’s), we rounded up three creative ways to incorporate cereal into your event’s F&B program. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day—no matter what time you eat it.

1) Create a DIY Station
Ask your venue’s catering team to set up a station with a variety of cereals (include the sugary stuff along with healthier options) and toppings like fresh and dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, crushed cookies and honey. Use stand-up dispensers or sturdy glass jars with metal scoops for the cereals, and serve different milks, including nondairy varieties, in milkman-era bottles for a nostalgic twist. 

2) Make It a Competition
For a tasty teambuilding activity similar to the Kellogg’s-sponsored competition at Taste Talks Brooklyn in 2015, give competing groups five minutes to create inventive combinations using a selection of cereals and toppings, with the winner decided by a judge.

3) Put a Lid on It
For an easy grab-and-go snack option, have baskets of dry cereal in sealable jars and individual milk containers available for attendees who miss breakfast or need an afternoon pick-me-up. Team up with catering to create premade specialty jars containing combos of cereal and nonperishable toppings so attendees only need to add milk.
