Cereal is the epitome of convenience. But as we gear up for the school year and try to make healthier choices for our kids, the spotlight is on those colourful bowls, and their sugar content.
A bowl of cereal here and there may not be an issue in moderation; however, daily use could pose an issue as you’re starting your day with a sugar kick.
BusinessTech has investigated the sugar content in some of South Africa’s favourite cereals to help you decide on the best breakfast option to start your day.
The top two cereals to avoid or limit are Coco Pops and Strawberry pops with 33.1 grams of sugar per 100 grams. Instead, Weet-Bix Lite is the better choice with only 1.1 grams of sugar per 100 grams. Take a look at the full list to see where your favourites lie.
Here are a few homemade breakfast options that offer a healthier alternative to shop-bought cereals.
