How Much Sugar is in your Cereal?

How Much Sugar is in your Cereal?

Go to this Environmental Working Group (EWG) article to find out the most and least sugary cereal brands.

I checked myself, and it turns out Cheerios are one of the least sugary.  Phew!  Despite my sweet tooth, I could give up Applejacks or Froot Loops much more easily than I could give up Cheerios.

    What defines “children’s cereal” — Is sugar part of the definition?
    I don’t see my favorite Shredded Wheat listed. Do they think children won’t eat it?

      I’m guessing by “children’s cereal,” they mean cereals that are clearly marketed to children: the ones in the brightly-colored boxes with the mascots on them. Otherwise, I’m not sure.
