With little kitchen prep and clean up, cereals are an ideal fast food in the morning. A USDA report shows that ready-to-eat cereals are a top breakfast choice and are more popular than breads, bagels, and other bakery items among Americans in the early hours of the morning.
Beware: Not all cereals are created equal. Your cereal should contain:
* Whole Grains (contains “100% whole grains” or “whole grains” are the predominate source of grains listed in the ingredients)
* At least 2 grams of fiber per serving
* No more than 2 teaspoons of added sugar (8 grams of sugar on the Nutrition Facts Panel) per serving
