Kinderling News & Features

The internet has finally reached ‘peak dad’ with a new craze combining sleeping babies and breakfast cereal going viral over the weekend.  

Started by the Life Of Dad website just in time for Father's Day in the US, the #CheerioChallenge social media challenge has inspired fathers to see how many Cheerio rings they can stack on their snoozing kids with hilarious results. 

As expected with dads, they’re taking this silly fun pretty seriously and getting quite competitive and creative. Here's a few of our favourite contenders...
