Thank You, Captain Obvious!

Don’t you love it when the media states the obvious as though it’s leading-edge news?

Some U.S. Cereals More than Half Sugar

“WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Some breakfast cereals marketed to U.S. children are more than half sugar by weight and many get only fair scores on nutritional value, Consumer Reports said on Wednesday.

A serving of 11 popular cereals, including Kellogg’s Honey Smacks, carries as much sugar as a glazed doughnut, the consumer group found.

And some brands have more sugar and sodium when formulated for the U.S. market than the same brands have when sold in other countries.”

While I admit that my mental acuity is not quite what it was before parenthood, even I know giving small children breakfast cereal laced with high-fructose corn syrup is not a good idea.

Go Puffins, no-sugar Raisin Bran and multigrain Cheerios!
