Cold cereal has taken a bad rap nutrition-wise. Hold on before you dump it in the compost. Researching breakfast habits of 10,000 kids and adolescents showed those who ate any kind of cereal every morning got more nutrition than breakfast skippers or those who ate other kinds of breakfast. Kids skipping that morning meal ate more sugar during the day and were more likely to be obese. Get to the cereal aisle and select one with 5 g fiber for a healthy start to the day.
