Do you like cereal?  Do you think your cereal is healthy?  If you're reading this blog you probably have more knowledge about health and nutrition than the average person, or atleast the desire to know.

Cereal is a great way to start your day (or end it), provided you make a wise selection and watch the sugar content.

Men's Health magazine's Eat This, Not That ranked some cereals and here is a summary of their findings.

Fiber One Original (low in calories, high in fiber, no sugar)
Nature's Path Smart Bran (fiber!!)
Shredded Wheat Original (not frosted)
Kashi Go Lean
Grape Nuts (I tried these when I was young and was REALLY disappointed that they didn't taste like grapes)
Kix (best of the sweet cereals)

Worst  (typically low in fiber and high in sugar)
Smart Start
Frosted Flakes - Reduced Sugar
Froot Loops
Lucky Charms
Honey Smacks (17g of sugar!!)
Golden Crisp (the first ingredient listed is sugar)

What's your favorite cereal?  As you know from a previous post, I'm loving Trader Joe's High Fiber Cereal right now.
