Let’s face it, if you want your child to have a healthy breakfast you may not want to head down the cereal isle at your local grocery store. I wouldn’t even call it a breakfast…most cereals are are just a sugar fix not a nutritious breakfast to start the day. Would you send your child to school with a couple of chocolate cookies and send them out the door to.In fact 3 chip Ahoy Cookies have less sugar than some breakfast cereals.
Parents have good reason to worry about the sugar content of children’s breakfast cereals, according to an Environmental Working Group review of 84 popular brands.
Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, at nearly 56 percent sugar by weight, leads the list of the 10 worst children’s cereals, according to EWG’s analysis. In fact, a one-cup serving of the brand packs more sugar than a Hostess Twinkie, and one cup of any of the 44 other children’s cereals has more sugar than three Chips Ahoy! cookies.
