BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Brown eyes. Sense of humor. Curly hair. Parents can pass many things on to their kids. They can also pass on their passions, everything from a love for sports to their favorite breakfast cereal. That's why Kellogg is pleased to announce the "Share What You Love about Kellogg's Frosted Flakes®" contest that asks parents along with coaches and mentors around the country to submit their story about how they share their love of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® cereal with their kids. In turn, one lucky American and his or her kids will win a VIP sports practice session with former New York Yankee Tino Martinez.
"Kellogg Company knows the importance of sharing the things you love with family and we know Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® is a favorite breakfast cereal that parents love," said Kathleen Piper, Kellogg Company marketing director. "We hope this contest encourages parents, coaches and mentors to share what they love with their kids and create even more memories that last a lifetime."
One lucky winner will have the opportunity to meet sports legend Martinez, winner of four World Series championships. Martinez will fly to the winner's town and conduct a practice session including helpful tips on how to compete on the field. In addition, they will have a delicious breakfast with Kellogg's Frosted Flakes® and Tony the Tiger™.
"I love sharing the things I love with my kids, everything from sports to something as simple as a favorite breakfast cereal," said Martinez. "That's why this Kellogg's Frosted Flakes™ program is so fun. It gives parents a great opportunity to do something special with their kids."
