The Worst Cereals in the World
October 23, 2008
Some breakfast cereals currently being marketed to U.S. children are more than half sugar by weight, according to Consumer Reports.
A single serving of 11 popular cereals, including Kellogg's Honey Smacks, can carry as much sugar as a glazed doughnut. And some brands have even more sugar and sodium when formulated for the U.S. market than the same brands have when sold in other countries.
Post's Golden Crisp and Kellogg's Honey Smacks are both more than 50 percent sugar by weight, while nine brands are at least 40 percent sugar.
