General Mills Cereal and Commitment

Cheerios has been A family favorite for decades - and with good reason. Made with whole grain, Cheerios is the only ready-to-eat cereal clinically proven to lower cholesterol when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

The wholesome goodness of Cheerios is ideal as a nutritious breakfast or snack for kids,teens and adults. This is my Eight Year old son's favorite Cereal. He loves to eat Cheerios for breakfast with milk and he also likes to eat these plain as a healthy snack. These are a favorite with the little ones too.

General Mills has announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in cereals while increasing key nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, and providing whole grain.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children´s diets.

Other cereal benefits:
•Ready-to-eat cereals, including presweetened cereals, account for only 5% of sugar in children´s diets.
•Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child´s diet today.
•More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.

Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.
