For those who are not lactose intolerant, but experience discomfort after eating your favorite childhood cereals, here’s Dr. Mint’s thoughts…
Many cereals on the market, specifically children’s cereals contain levels of sugar that are unhealthy for daily human consumption. In fact, some children’s cereals are 50% sugar in total weight! The highest percentage cereal by weight containing sugar are listed in Table 2 of the website below:
You wouldn’t eat a spoonful of sugar, like the Mary Poppins song recommends. It would be difficult to watch someone do this, but it happens millions of times per day in America.
Half the recommended limit for daily consumption of sugar in children is in one serving of cereals like: Kellogg’s Golden Smacks or Post’s Golden Crisp.
Adults, especially parents need to be aware of this, to limit overdosing on recommended daily sugar intake before breakfast is over. Start your day off right with foods that don’t contain added sugar, preservatives, or artificial ingredients.
