Since we love those yummy little frosted wheat squares of the bigger brands, we decided to try Sweetened Wheatfuls! They have fewer carbs, more calcium and less sugar than the big brand!! And one big difference I noticed after eating one average size bowl was that I was actually full!!! So that was a good deal...I am the one that could eat two bowls of cereal regularly. There is also NO high fructose corn syrup. It's important to have a good quality breakfast so our kids can stay focused and full until lunch time at school! This will definitely do the trick!
The other cereal we tried was Oats and Honey Blend which is like one of our other favorite "big brand" cereals. The best part of these cereals is that they taste just as good as the ones with more sugar and you know your kids are getting good food!
