Breakfast Cereals You Should Avoid

Some breakfast cereals contain more than 50% added sugar by weight! Don’t let the one gracing your cereal bowl be one of those! Based on a review by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a nonprofit research and advocacy organization, the 10 cereals with the highest sugar content (by percentage weight) are:
  • Kellogg’s Honey Smacks (55.6%)
  • Post Golden Crisp (51.9%)
  • Kellogg’s Froot Loops Marshmellow (48.3%)
  • Quaker Oats Cap’n Crunch’s OOPS! All Berries (46.9%)
