General Mills is cutting the sugar down in some children’s cereals

Great news,

General Mills is planning on dropping the sugar in some of its main cereal products like Lucky Charms, and Cocoa puffs. They are doing this because enough people have complained. They plan to make changes to their advertised cereal products. This is a great move by General Mills, its something that should have been done a long time ago.

If they are going to market these foods to our kids, they had better be marketing something healthy. A study published by  the Rudd Center recently found that the least-healthy breakfast cereals are the most frequently and aggressively marketed directly to children.

I believe that changes like this are taking place because people are starting to wake up and do something about it. We can’t be afraid to recognize obesity as a real problem and challenge it head-on.
