Don't Eat These Cereals!


sugar-cereal-sm2501We’ve been hearing a lot lately about the nutritious value – or lack thereof – in kids cereals. The worst, they say, are being marketed to our kids.

So which cereals, exactly, are the worst? Thank heavens for handy dandy charts (yes, we watch too much Blues Clues – perhaps that’s what’s frying the brain cells?)!

According to the research:

  1. Reese’s Puffs
  2. Corn Pops
  3. Lucky Charms
  4. Cinnamon Toast Crunch tied with Cap’N Crunch
  5. Trix tied with Froot Loops
  6. Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles (likewise a tie)
  7. Cocoa Puffs
  8. Cookie Crisp

And that, my friends, sums up all the really good stuff I like to eat when I’m in a bad mood. Because I’m even crankier now, you’ll have to check in with the Toronto Star for the good picks.

As Sandy Maple pointed out the other day – if you think putting a bowl of sugary flakes in front of your kids is a good idea, perhaps you have been eating too many of them. So there were no big shockers on this list. The question is: are you going to change anything after reading it?
