Did you know that a nutritious breakfast is as easy as a bowl of cereal plus milk?

Did you know that cereal plus milk can provide 3 of the 4 nutrients most lacking in kids’ diets, including calcium, vitamin D and potassium?

As you and your family settle back into the fall routine, it’s important to start your day off with a powerful breakfast. Experts agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and nine out of ten moms agree that cereal makes a convenient breakfast choice.

In our family, we all eat breakfast on a dailly basis and we eat it together. It took me a long time to get to the point where I would eat breakfast on a regular basis. It wasn’t really until I had children that I began to come around about breakfast.

**THE TRUTH ABOUT CEREAL**

* Kellogg’s cereal plus one cup of milk provides protein and four key nutrients (fiber, calcium, vitamin D, and potassium) most likely to be lacking in kids’ diets.

* Research shows that children who eat cereal for breakfast tend to weigh less.

* On average, breakfast cereal provides only 4 percent of the average person’s daily intake of added sugar in the U.S.

* 95 percent of ready-to-eat cereal in developed markets is eaten with milk, making breakfast cereal an important driver for milk intake

Americans ages 9-13 who eat ready-to-eat cereal take in:

49 % more iron than kids who eat other types of breakfast35 percent more Vitamin A than those who ate other types of breakfast

55 percent more Vitamin A than those who skip breakfast altogether

Nine out of 10 moms agree that cereal makes a convenient breakfast choice
