Taste Test

Taste test: new cereals

While serving our school kids a hot and healthy breakfast is an admirable goal, many of us are hard pressed just to get them dressed and out the door before the bell rings. So, we often turn to cold cereal. That's what makes this the perfect season for makers to roll out new offerings, colorfully packaged in attractive and enticing boxes. We passed up some of the new chocolate-flavored cereals, opting instead to sample four options that purported to have some nutritional significance. For this task, we enlisted the palates of the fifth-grade teaching team at Pasadena Fundamental Elementary School in St. Petersburg. All cereals were tasted dry.
