I was never really a breakfast eater, but now every morning, when my son gets up he and I have cereal together. He will have Cheerios and I will either have Cheerios, Special K or Rice Krispy's. It has become part of my morning routine and I have come to realize that by me eating a little something for breakfast, I don't feel hungry really until it is time for lunch. I recommended eating a little something for breakfast, no matter what. I have, personally, seen better weight loss by eating breakfast.

Cereal is just fine in moderation. I normally try to avoid grains, but that's a personal preference...I do treat myself occasionally, and I love, love, LOVE Golden Grahams, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cocoa Puffs, and Blueberry Morning.

My normal breakfast is a banana, followed by a low-carb yogurt about 2-3 hours later (my day starts super early)

Cereal is good, just as long as your choosing the healthy stuff. Also using your scale and measuring out the serving size is a must. I used to think that 1 cup of one cereal was a lot more then it is in reality. So make sure you keep your servings at the recommended level...I LOVE cereal!

I really like cereal too but in moderation! What I found has helped me is buying the mini ones! That way I get a variety but still enjoy the sweetness!

I really don't think cereal is "bad" for you, you just have to get the right kind. The benefit of "kid" cereal is that it is generally loaded with vitamins and minerals. I think the key with cereal is to make sure you only eat one portion! Measure it out. I did that once and was shocked to see that I was eating closer to two cups of cereal at a time, not one! Healthier cereals are generally more expensive (of course!), but they have a lot less sugar in them. Those would be the kashi brands. But for healthy kid cereal, I would assume cheereos and Special K would be acceptable!
