The Best and Worst Cereals

Are your kids bouncing off the walls after breakfast?  It could be that bowl of sugar that you placed in front of them this morning for breakfast.  My grandchildren like cold cereal, and it’s a great option when I don’t have time or feel like fixing pancakes or waffles. I decided to research the sugar grams in what I was feeding them, and I was quite surprised when I came across the best and worst cereal list.  I thought I would share it with you. You too may be surprised by the list, and may think twice about what you serve your children for breakfast.   Here’s the list:


                                          Best Cereals

      •  Mini Wheats                               
      •  Life                                      
      • Rice Krispies                       
      • Wheaties                                   
      • Kix                                          
      • Corn Flakes                               
      • Cheerios                                     
      • Shredded Wheat    
      • Honey Nut Cheerios
      • Grape Nuts
      • Special K  

                                                               Worst Cereals

      • Honey Smacks                        
      • Golden Crisp                           
      • Lucky Charms                       
      • Fruit Loops                             
      • Trix                                           
      • Raisin Bran                              
      • Sugar Frosted Flakes       
      • Apple Jacks
      • Crunch Berries            

                                    
I love Honey Nut Cheerios and Raisin Bran.  I’m happy at least one of them made the Best Cereal List and that one just happens to be the cereal I give my grandchildren. The majority of the time I give my grandchildren oatmeal, especially during the cold, winter months or fix them pancakes or waffles with fruit. Occasionally, I do fix sausage links with eggs. Neither are fond of bacon. 


Does yours or your child’s favorite cereal fall into the Best or Worst list? Is the list making you rethink your cereal choice? It will definitely be a reminder the next time I’m in the cereal aisle and considering buying something different.
