General Mills Lowering Sugar in Cereals

General Mills, Inc.Image via Wikipedia
Ever since General Mills started doing the Movie Cash Promotion, I have been stocking up on Cereal every time I find one of those treasured boxes with the code on them.  

When I had the chance to learn about General Mills reducing sugar, I happily accepted the offer. 

Here are some facts on their lower sugar announcement:

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.

    I was searching for a good book to help me with my diet. In the end I googled it and found this site http://www.hungryforweightloss.com.

    They are giving away a free ebook called "365 tips for healthy living". I didn't expect it to be any good because it's free but it's actually brilliant so I thought i'd share it here :)
