Taste Test

Taste test: new cereals

I was in high school when dietitians started touting the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast. My mother worked very hard to put hot food on the table every morning before school. And, almost every morning, I would bound down the stairs, grab a cold drink and tell Mom I didn't have time to eat. Now, when my own children skip breakfast, I know how bad my mother must have felt. But, I have learned to compromise. If they won't eat a hot breakfast, I make sure to keep portable foods on hand for school days. And, I always keep the pantry stocked with cereal. This week, our tasters tried four new cereals likely developed with back-to-school children in mind.
