My goal for this year was to keep up with eating healthy and getting my body in better shape. I have tried to get better at reading food labels and seeing especially what are in the first ingredients listed. I am also trying to get better at looking at my kids foods. They are really picky about what they eat and I know part of that is my not at least making them try new things.
One thing my kids can’t seem to get enough of is cereal!! If I would let them eat it all day everyday, they certainly would and try to. Thankfully I have been pretty good at making sure they are not getting cereals that are super high in sugar and I try to find ones that give them enough fiber.
I was sent 5 of General Mills Cereals to try out that have Whole Grains as their first ingredient. Cheerios, Honey Nut Cheerios, Total, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms.
My kids were happy to see so much cereal in the house!! Of course, they knew which ones I didn’t really want them to have that had the highest sugar content, but let them have a treat for this time around. It is nice to see that they all had whole grains as the first ingredient, but it would be nice if some of them didn’t have such a high sugar content. Overall, we were pleased with the cereals and a couple of them we would buy again.
