I still have fond memories of sitting in front of the TV on Saturday mornings (back when Saturday Morning cartoons were cool) with a big heaping bowl of cereal. Usually something with a cartoon character on the box begging me to eat more. A new survey has put several popular kids’ cereals on a "should not eat" list. The Environmental Working Group reviewed 84 popular kids’ cereals and found that only one in four of them meet the government panel’s voluntary proposed guidelines for sugar. Below are the ten worst offenders they found by measuring the percentage of sugar in each cereal according to its weight. Kellog's Honey Smacks came in as the worst offender and they claim that a one-cup serving of Honey Smacks has more sugar than a Hostess Twinkie. Wow.
