In this lesson of Grocery School, find out what to look for when you buy cereal.
There are cereals that are good for you, but you really have to hunt for them. Now-a-days, most cereals have GMO labels. If there is no label on the cereal box, look for corn as the ingredients.
Keep an eye on sugar and fat as well. There is corn syrup, fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oils representing sugar and fat in the cereal. An average serving of cereal contains 25-40 grams of carbohydrate.
Most cereals contain wheat products, so if you are allergic, carefully read the ingredients.
There is no major difference between major brands and generics, except for the price.
If you still want cereal, but don’t want lots of fat, sugar and additives, look for certified organic labels and enjoy.
You can also have puffed rice, puffed corn, or anything from the ‘Kashi’ company. If you want to have lots of hot cereal, it’s pretty much same to the cold cereal.
