Twinkies for Breakfast?

Filed under: General Health, Nutrition

The Environmental Working Group recently looked at 84 popular brands of cereal to see if they meet either the federal government’s proposed nutrition guidelines or the industry’s looser nutrition guidelines.

Amazingly 75% of the cereals tested failed to meet the federal guidelines, and many of the cereals had more sugar per serving than a twinkie!

For example Kellog’s Honey Smacks are 56% sugar by weight! That is disgusting. A lot of these cereals are like having dessert for breakfast, and they are marketed to kids and moms as healthy ways to start the day. Call me crazy but that seems a little misleading in my book.

    Despite the sickly sweet poison contained within, they have such wonderfully colourful packaging. It’s generally the added milk that makes the cereal taste so nice, in my opinion.

    This may not be the best place to request this, but I am searching for a pest management provider inside the pittsburgh region and have no way to find out who is the best. I found this company which is truly close to me and wished to see if anyone has any assessments on them. Spectrum Pest Control, 3058 West Liberty Avenue, Dormont, PA 15216 – (412) 446-2802
