Report Finds Children's Cereals Are 50% Sugar

Consumer reports says some breakfast cereals our children eat are more than half sugar by weight, and many only get fair nutritional value marks.

The group says eleven name brand cereals, including Kellogg's Honey Smacks, have as much sugar as a glazed doughnut. They also say many brands sold in America have more sugar than the same brands that are sold overseas.

Consumer reports says the most healthful brands are Cheerios, Kix, Honey Nut Cheerios and life.

    Gee...really? Took a lot of research $$'s to figure that out....all you needed to go was look at the boxes and maybe open one or two. You can get high off the sugar fumes from some of these. What's next? Spend good gov't money (that could go to better use)for research that candy bars have chocolate in them??? DUH, $$ well spent.
