This is alarming in light of the fact that ours is the second-fattest nation in the world after Mexico, and suggests that tomorrow's leaders are puffing up and dumbing down on empty calories packaged inside of waxed paper inside of cardboard boxes, adding insult to injury if you get my point. Following are just a few of the cereals crowding the marketplace. Their names say it all: good nutrition is not an option.
Special K Chocolate Almond
Special K Chocolatey Delight
Kellogg's Honey Smacks (55.6% sugar, originally called Sugar Smacks)
Froot Loops Marshmallow (also responsible for poor spelling)
Chocolate Lucky Charms
Berry Lucky Charms
Peanut Butter Crunch
Rice Krispies Treats
Do your part and don't buy any cereal you don't have to cook before eating. Oatmeal is a particularly wise choice.
