The NFL MVP will soon be in your kitchen.

Adrian Peterson has finally made the big time, with his inclusion on a new Wheaties box -- the breakfast of champions:

According to a news release from General Mills, it's the first of three limited-edition Wheaties boxes to feature Peterson, which will be released in stores this week.

The company calls Peterson an "inspiration both on and off of the football field," who has "overcome adversity and injury to rank among football’s elite. His leadership and performance made him a natural fit for this honor."

For his part, AP says he has "fond memories" of Wheaties from his childhood, hearing his parents tell him he "better eat his Wheaties."

"I never thought that as a kid that I would actually be on the same box that once had my childhood heroes on it," Peterson said. "I am blessed and fortunate to have such an incredible honor."
