Peanut butter jelly rice cereal bars

This September 1-week school holiday has been the most fruitful and fun! We were visiting various places of interests in town, like a tourist, from Science Centre, taking a river cruise at Clarke Quay, Gardens by the Bay, Universal Studios, Kranji farms, to a special invite Skippy Yippee family day, and also baking at home with kids!

When I first received the invite for the launch of Skippy new product range, natural & healthier version, I was kinda surprised but nevertheless accepted it to "fill" one of the school holiday activities. My lil boy was all prep to see Dr jiajia and a radio DJ (Jamie Yeo). And because we went to the Kranji farms in the morning, we actually overslept for the afternoon event (ohno...) ... Luckily we had the car on that day so it was pretty fast speeding reaching Tott where it was held.

I didn't know what to expect in a product launch, but this is pretty cool and fun especially for my lil boy, making peanut butter jelly rice cereal bars like a chef!

Also there were array of food and desserts using peanut butter, and they all look too pretty to eat...haha
