Best and Worst Breakfast Cereals

I ran across this article about the worst breakfast cereals and their better counterparts that was interesting.  Who would have thought….Raisin Bran isn’t as healthy as they would like you to think it is!!!!  Check out the article here:  Best and Worst Breakfast Cereals!

WORST ICONIC CEREAL

Kellogg’s Raisin Bran (1 cup)
190 calories
1.5 g fat (0 g saturated) 
7 g fiber
19 g sugars

It’ll be hard to find a more sugar-loaded cereal than Raisin Bran. It’s sweeter than even Lucky Charms, Reese’s Puffs, or Cocoa Krispies. Some of that sugar can be attributed to the raisins’ natural blend of fructose and glucose, but the real culprit is the sticky white armor of sucrose that enrobes each piece of fruit. Both Kellogg’s and Post are guilty of this raisin mistreatment, so what should be a legitimately healthy bowl of fruit and grains pours out closer to a candy-coated dessert.
