Consumer Report Says Some U.S. Cereals More Than Half Sugar
Posted Oct 07 2008 6:16pm
As the father of a 3 year old daughter, I am concerned about what she eats. Fortunately, she does not like meat, craves vegetables...and eats whole wheat cereals, like Post Shredded Wheat Squares with rice milk and fruit. This did not happen by accident either...my wife and I are very careful about what we feed her as she develops her eating habits and food choices...and it shows.
According to Consumer Reports, some of the most popular children's cereals are over 50% sugar and salt. For instance, a bowl a Kellogg's Honey Smacks has as much sugar as a glazed donut. Geez...no wonder we have a child obesity problem.
