It's the coffee

Cereal, as a high-carb food, often gets a bad rap for raising people's blood sugar. A recent Canadian study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reveals that the real culprit could the caffeinated coffee you are drinking along with your cereal.

Stick to a glass of juice.

Cereal Heroes - coming to a theatre near you

There is word this week that Fable Works, a movie production and animation company, will be producing a 3D-animated movie, Cereal Heroes, to be released in 2010. According to their press release,

The story follows the adventures of cartoon cereal-box-mascots who are mistakenly brought to life when a plan to replace the worlds fallen superheroes with characters from comic books goes awry. These unlikely Cereal Heroes with ridiculous powers soon find themselves alone and on the run in an unfamiliar world that only they can save from certain destruction.

There is no word if they will using real cereal mascots (i.e. advertising placements) or coming up with their own. Somehow I can't imagine Toucan Sam, Sugar Bear, the Trix rabbit and Tony the Tiger saving the world.

Cereal influences gender of babies

A recent study out of the UK examined the relationship between the foods eaten by pregnant women and the gender of their babies. The only food that showed a correlation was breakfast cereal. Women who ate breakfast cereal daily were more likely to have a boy.

Does this mean mothers will start changing their eating habits to help determine the sex of their next child?
