Kid Cereal…Cookies and Healthy Grown-up Cereal

Posted on by ridzomom

imageI just read an article on sugar in kids’ breakfast cereals here on ABC News.  In the article it compared the sugar content of kids cereals to the sugar content of a serving of Chips Ahoy cookies. It turns out that the cookies had less sugar and it got me thinking…are “grown-up” breakfast cereals any better? Turns out that two of the “healthy” cereals I thought of first: Kashi Honey Almond Cereal and Great Grains—also have more sugar than the 10 grams in a serving of Chips Ahoy. However, they do have more fiber, which is good because it helps with the assimilation of sugar.
Lesson for the day…read your labels!
