Cereal’s Role in a Nutritious Breakfast
Coming ready to eat out of the box without extra mess and cooking, cereal is a cornerstone of the busy American family's diet. Kellogg's fortified and whole grain cereals offer a low-fat, nutrient-dense, cholesterol-free food that encourages breakfast consumption. Studies have found that children who consume breakfast cereal have a higher intake of essential vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, and B and D vitamins.
