Breakfast cereals have too much sugar

Reuters recently reported on a new study that says “U.S. children are consuming more than 10 pounds (4.5 kgs) of sugar annually if they eat a typical morning bowl of cereal each day.”

I trace many of my childhood cavities to overly sugared breakfast cereal. Frosted flakes of course are covered in sugar. And I would add gobs of sugar even to something relatively plain like Rice Krispies.

Trader Joe's high fiber cereal is my go-to breakfast choice every day, high in fiber, low in sugar and sodium.

Most cereal, even those aimed at adults, have too much of either sugar or salt. I avoid most these days.

My go-to cereal has become Trader Joe’s High Fiber cereal. A serving, which  is 2/3s of a cup, has only 80 calories, 0.5 grams of fat and 5 grams of sugar with only 70 mgs of salt. It also has 9 grams of fiber, more than most cereals that tout their fiber content. Up it to a cup and you’re at 12 grams of fiber.

I eat it every day and find it one of the tastier items on my new, post-angiopasty diet.
