In honor of today's "national food holiday," Kellogg's hosted Academy Award-nominated actress, multi-platinum selling recording artist and cereal lover Hailee Steinfeld at Kellogg's NYC Café to celebrate with some of cereal's biggest fans.

During the event, partygoers were able to feast on exciting cereal-themed creations – including cereal bites, cocktails and a liquid nitrogen cereal bar – for more than three hours before dancing the night away to a performance by Hailee Steinfeld and a cereal-themed New Year's-style countdown at midnight.

To celebrate the occasion, Kellogg's NYC Café – the largest cereal café in the country – was transformed overnight into National Cereal Day headquarters. The party included mixes by DJ Flipside, larger-than-life cereal boxes suspended from the ceiling, a photo booth with cereal-themed party favors, colorful confetti and a giant disco "bowl" which lit up at the stroke of midnight.

"It's about time cereal had its own holiday!" said Hailee Steinfeld. "I had no idea there were so many ways to play with and imagine cereal differently, these special Kellogg's DIY recipes are delicious! I love a good classic bowl with milk, but now I have some fun ideas to spice up my cereal routine!"

The event kicked off a two-day celebration that continues today.

"Kellogg's NYC Café continues to spark creativity by encouraging people to reimagine what a bowl of cereal can be -- and even the bowl is optional," said Aleta Chase, Kellogg's Marketing Director. "It made sense to celebrate this modern, inventive approach to how we think of food on National Cereal Day."
