BBC: Poor nutrition in cereals exposed

No surprise is it? 85 out of 100 cereals were considered to have "a lot" of sugar and the worst offenders were all marketed at children. Might as well give them sweets for breakfast. That said, even good ol' toast and jam must have a lot of sugar. And Marmite must have a lot of salt. A healthy breakfast can be hard to find - especially for kids. Luckily our kids quite like old fashioned oats but I confess there are some cereals in the cupboard: Cheerio's and Quaker Oat Crunchies. We do look out for the sugar content of the cereals we buy though.
