Children's breakfast cereals have to be one of the most deplorable products on supermarket shelves. The same garbage I ate as a kid still exist. Their only benefit was to add to my overweight, and give me a few dental fillings.
It's time for Kellogg, and General Foods to become responsible.
If Michele Obama had a real plan about children eating healthier, she should start with breakfast, not their snacks, which is another issue.

The fact is, if you stop eating crap, and eat healthy food, after a while, you simply do not crave the crap anymore. Try it, you might be surprised. Noted thanks.

thanks. Although I'm not sure most of that deserves the label "food". Totally agree with Nimue Pendragon.
