the tracker doesn't assume anything, it goes by what you tell it. so if you input that you had cereal, it assumes you had cereal. if you had milk with your cereal, then you have to enter the milk separately. if you make chili, using the recipe tracker sparkrecipes.com or you can find the link under the articles and video tab is the way to go. you enter in the info from the packet, then all ingredients you add, figure out the yield and how many servings it makes and the calculator will do all the math for you.
You'd need to enter each item seperately, so enter the milk and enter the cereal. If you're making chili, I'd enter the whole recipe (including all ingredients), and then just put the serving size you ate into your tracker.
I always enter cereal and milk separately. I don't know about your other question

I have 2 questions...when you input cereal for breakfast, does it automatically assume you have it with milk or do you need to enter milk? 2) for dinners that use packet seasonings (ex: mccormick chili) how do you enter that? just the packet? or have to add all the ingredients in the chili? Thanks all.
