A lot of people like cereal because it makes for a simple and quick breakfast especially if you have an on-the-go kind of family. They give you an easy way to have a tasty breakfast without putting in too much effort. Their colorful packaging screams kid friendly but they are really not good for kids. Cereals are full of sugar and many other additives. It’s interesting that they do actually claim to be fortified with vitamins. Don’t fall for it because that just means they have a processed sort of goodness added and not the natural goodness. So it’s worth taking the extra time to prepare a healthy breakfast, especially for your children. A bowl of oatmeal could do. Just prepare it with some fruit or eggs and add a side fruit or toast made from whole wheat.
