This is why I am writing this blog. I wanted to do an article on sweetened cereals and have discovered that some of my choices are not so stellar after all.
After cleaning out my pantry and tossing a few boxes that shall remain nameless, here are our top choices. These were chosen by a carefully selected committee (Evan, Maddie and Jack). They were more than happy to overindulge in cereal in the middle of the afternoon. Thanks guys! Does this mean they won’t beg me for Lucky Charms anymore?
These are what I would call middle of the road sugar amounts. Remember I want to find balance. One of the most important things to me is that they are free of artificial colors, preservatives and BHT. These have none of that nasty stuff. They are not without sugar (one has eight grams) but with a balanced approach to the rest of the day’s choices, I think these could all be part of a healthy diet.
