PYP on the news!

Hold that cereal!

I love finding a great deal on cereal - it's an easy breakfast, stores well with a decent shelf life, and with the right sale and coupon matchup, can be purchased for cheap!

But I often wonder just what exactly I'm trading in nutritionally for that convenience. So recently I've tried to make an effort to choose "healthier" cereals for my family. I thought I was doing so well! Little did I know...

Yahoo! Health and Men's Health Magazine published an article this morning on the best and worst breakfast cereals, ones you might think would be good for you but really aren't. Guess what I found? I'm an offender on almost every count! Here I was so proud of myself for picking up the Raisin Bran cereal instead of the "sugary kid cereals"...WHAT A SHOCK! And I'm a big proponent of reading the nutrition labels, and I STILL missed this one!

To see what they found, check out the full article HERE. Looks like I have a lot more studying to do... ;)

I read that article this morning and thought the same exact thing! I considered Raisin Bran and Chex to be the "healthier" ones in house! Guess I can start buying Cookie Crisp again...

Reading labels is so important. Thanks for the great info and article. This just makes me want to plant a huge garden and fruit trees.
