I used to really like cereal, but after staying away for a while, every one I try anymore just tastes like cardboard.

I do still like Count Chocoula despite how unhealthy it is, but at least I only eat it "in season" now XD

With my son being a teenager, he seldom asks for cereal anymore. If I have a taste for a cereal, I generally look for ones with high fiber and protein. Little or no sugar and low in fat.
- I love the FiberOne brand!

Love the half and half idea. Going to start it with my two Froot loop loving toddlers! :)

Short and sweet...but providing good information. I had never heard of the rule of five before. Thanks...

As with most areas in life, EVERYTHING in moderation, including cereals. One bowl of the bad stuff a week and the other 6 days, oatmeal, shredded wheat/ fruit. No new news here.

Raisin Bran does not follow the rule of five. It has 18-19 grams of sugar!!!

Cereal is not real food. I know parents turn to it for breakfast for their children because it is fast and easy. I see this as a convenience for parents and not the health of their children.
*smh*. So sad.....

Be careful eating a lot of those high fiber cereals if your body isn't used to it. I started a high fiber diet including cereal, and ended up with appendicitis. I believe strongly it was from introducing too much fiber to my system all at once.

I have never tried yogurt in my cereal before I may have to now, though I have mixed cereal in my kids yogurt, he likes the crunch. I like to use vanilla almond milk, I usually get the unsweetened but the flavor alone adds enough, and fruit is always a great way to go.

I purchase a healthier cereal, then I add 10 almonds and some yogurt, and my skim milk. I can usually get it to 20 gm of protein, with a fair calorie count. A little wheat germ can bump it up as well.

For the most part I eat Cherrios or Mini Wheats for breakfast, along with some toast, but every now and then, I get something like Fruit Loops or some other sugary cereal. And on Sundays I have hashbrowns, eggs, toast, coffee and bacon.

Unfortunately, all cereals that are not specifically identified as organic are likely to have GMO ingredients. GMO ingredients have been tied to gut distress and may contribute to weight gain.

My southern mom gave me a hot grits with butter breakfast, I still like this best. I also enjoy Cheerio's with sliced fruit, banana's or peaches.
