Breakfast not only is the most important meal of the day, but one consisting of cereal can be the most nutritious, as well.
According to research in Infant, Child & Adolescent Nutrition, children who start their day with a breakfast containing cereal tend to have lower body mass indexes and less chance of being overweight than those who eat other breakfasts or skip breakfast.
Kevin B. Miller, Ph.D., a senior nutrition scientist at Kellogg Company’s W.K. Kellogg Institute for Food and Nutrition, says that a serving of cereal and milk provides children with protein, fiber, calcium, Vitamin D and potassium.
According to an article in Drug Store News, a cereal breakfast, even ones that are presweetened, provides children a convenient, nutrient-dense and great-tasting way to start their day.
For children who love the great taste of a presweetened cereal to start their day, honey is the perfect sweetener. Honey is all-natural and provides 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon, which is a great boost of energy for children at the beginning of the day.
Cereal manufacturers have recognized the convenience of presweetening cereal with honey. Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal is a honey-sweetened puffed wheat cereal with packaging geared toward children. Honey Smacks are also a source of Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Vitamin B12.
Post’s Honey Bunches of Oats offers 12 varieties of cereal blends all containing honey. Their Labels for Education campaign is geared toward adults getting kids to eat a healthier breakfast by collecting UPCs redeemable for free educational merchandise.
Honey Nut Cheerios by General Mills not only includes 12 vitamins and minerals, calcium and whole grains, but it also has a great online ad campaign featuring Buzz the bee and several bee-centered games.
Breakfast never tasted so sweet.
