Choosing a Healthy Breakfast Cereal
It’s back to school season! Starting the day with a nourishing breakfast is key for managing energy levels and appetite throughout the day, as well as improving mental focus and mood. Cereal is a popular breakfast go-to however, not all cereal is created equal. Registered Dietitian Megan Roosevelt joined us to share her tips for selecting the most natural and nourishing breakfast cereals:
Limit Sodium: Choose a cereal with no more than 15% Daily Value of sodium per serving. More than 15% DV of sodium per serving is considered a high-sodium food
Limit Sugar: Choose cereal with no more than 8 grams of sugar per serving, especially if the sugar source is added sugars such as corn syrup, evaporated cane juice and white or brown sugar. Too much sugar can cause a spike and then crash in our energy levels.
