General Mills announced a commitment to further reduce sugar in cereals advertised to kids under 12 to single digit grams of sugar per serving. They have 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.

Disclosure: General Mills and MyBlogSpark provided me with information, links to the coupons and provided four complimentary coupons for General Mills cereal. All opinions and commentary are my own and I have not been financially compensated.

My daughter loves cereal especially some of the ones noted in your post. It's about time they start to reduce the amount of sugar in children's cereal (although my husband likes the same stuff). I stopped buying these types of cereals for a long time and switched to healthier stuff, but my family left this stuff half eaten. Now I'll gladly switch back.
