The Perfect Breakfast Cereal- Part 1

I know you must be thinking; how can you spend more than one blog talking about breakfast cereal?  For many, including me, breakfast cereal can be eaten at any time.  It can be nutritious, easy, portable and filling.  It also can be sugar filled, salt filled, fat filled and the equivalent of a candy bar with milk in it.  Know what to look for.

This topic was on one of the morning shows a while back.  The author of Eat This Not That, was discussing breakfast cereals with the host.  He was comparing and contrasting benefits of different brands and bringing to light the inconsistencies of the nutrition of many of them.

The breakfast cereal aisle can seem like a marketing explosion!  I will admit that very recently I spent 20 minutes in this aisle trying to find an appropriate, nutritious cereal for my husband.  Don’t use the front of the box, or the tag line marketing g slogan on the front of the box as an indication of the quality of the ingredients.  You have to become a detective!  Get your glasses out and read/compare/contrast the box labels.  Look at the serving size in comparison to this information.

Tomorrow I’ll give you 6 things to look for to make your best choice in cereals.
