well, i feel darned good about our cereal cabinet. we have cheerios, shredded wheat and wheaties; along with some nature's path and kashi. since we're old hands at label reading, the first two things i look at are the sodium content and the fiber. then i check out the rest. it's a sweet deal when the label content is just 'wheat' as in shredded wheat; and with wheaties it's whole grain wheat, sugar, salt, corn syrup, trisodium phosphate. the two are so different, it's not funny, and yet this article reccomends wheaties, so i have to wonder what the so called 'sugar' cereals have in them. i stick with cheerios which has whole oat flour, modified corn starch, wheat starch, sugar, salt, calcium carbonate, oat fiber and then a whole list of vitimins. this has made me think as i've compared these three standards in our cabinet: maybe i should make shredded wheat my fave and make sure i have fresh berries, etc to add. i love it with hot milk and a little added sugar. i grew up with it hot like that. yummy.
