Sugar Culprits

Despite recent attempts to improve the nutritional quality of cereals marketed to children, there are still some cereals to avoid, at least according to a new report from Consumer Reports. Studying 27 cereals marketed to children they found that some were two were more than 50 percent sugar (Post Golden Crisp and Kellogg's Honey Smacks), and nine were at least 40 percent sugar. Only four of the studied cereals rated "very good".

After Golden Crisp and Honey Smacks, the next least healthful cereals are Cap'n Crunch's Peanut Butter Crunch, Cap'n Crunch, Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, and Corn Pops.

Is anyone really surprised?
