Breakfast cereals contain sugar – some of which comes naturally from the grain and fruit ingredients and some of which is added for texture and taste reasons during processing. In fact when eaten as suggested with milk, even the sweetest cereal provides only 11% sugar in the bowl, which is less than two teaspoons of sugar per serving and less than that provided by other breakfast choices such as two slices of toast and jam, low fat sweetened yogurt or pancakes and syrup.
