Cereal Box Tip

This Sparked Me!

This is easy! Open the inside bag on your dry cereal ALL the way. This way, you can use a measuring cup to get the right amount of cereal. I found that when I just poured (even into my one cup bowl), it was WAY TOO EASY to get too much. Every 1/4 cup extra adds calories you may not want to eat!

MORE INFORMATION:
If you are not sure this will help, next time you pour your cereal, measure it AFTER you poured. You might be surprised!

    I used to put the measuring cup inside my bowl and pour the cereal into the measuring cup. Now I put the bowl on my kitchen scale and weigh out the serving. If the cereal has broken down some, the same volume of cereal may actually weigh more.
