General Mills lowers Sugar in popular kids cereals


We eat cereal in our house, but hate to see the high amount of sugar they contain. General Mills announced that they are committed to reducing the amount of sugar in cereal advertised to children under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving! Most of the ones my kids "prefer" are 11-12g of sugar per serving. This would be a great improvement. In addition to reducing sugar, General Mills has also been increasing the amount of key nutrients like calcium and vitamin D and providing whole grains.

So what's the big deal?
  • *Studies continue to show the benefits of eating breakfast, and not just for weight loss. Eating breakfast has many positive effects for children.
  • *Ready-to-eat cereal is the No.1 source of whole grains in a child's diet today. Since most kids are getting their grains from cereal, the switch to more whole grains is huge. 
  • *More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index.
