Tip of the Day
What's in Your Morning Spoonful?
Cold cereal comes in hundreds of varieties and is an easy and convenient breakfast, but how healthy is your favorite kind? Many cereals are loaded with added sugars. The key to finding a healthy cereal you enjoy is looking for healthful ingredients such as whole grains, little or no added sugars and no saturated fat or trans fat.
Whole-grain cereals can contain dietary fiber, which is good for your digestive system, so look for cereals that contain at least 2.5 grams or more of dietary fiber. Remember to check the serving size listed at the top right of the label. Keep in mind that cereals with dried fruit will have more added sugars.
