Guess the Nutrition Label! Reveal

Rachel is our contest winner with the correct answer of Fruity Cheerios!

Where's the fruit?

Oh, Fruity Cheerios. Let me count the ways I detest thee:

1. 92% Carbs

2. Ingredient 1 = Whole Grain Corn

3. Ingredient 2 = Sugar

4. Ingredient 4 = Corn Syrup

5. Ingredient 5 = Corn Starch

6. They perpetuate the myth that dietary cholesterol is public enemy #1.

7. They use children involved in gross, unbridled Cheerio orgies to sell their product. (As if that child is excited about the Cheerios because they are Cheerios. I have a feeling he would be as excited if the Cheerios were, say, cotton balls, shiny nickels, or Vital Omegas. 😉 )

Enjoy those Vital Omegas, Rachel. They’ll certainly treat you better than Fruity Cheerios.

A bowl of Joe’s Os (Trader Joe’s private label version of Cheerios) (measured for 75 gms of CHO) has given me the highest ever blood glucose from a “food” since I began monitoring my BG – 265, reached in only 45 minutes. And later I had a nasty hypoglycemic low in the 60s. After that I banned all cold cereals from the house. Why would I want my son to eat predigested bowls of fast absorbing, highly processed glucose?

Anna,
I have 4 kids. They are with me 50% of the month, the other 50 with mom.
They eat “regular foods” at mom’s house and eat primal/paleo/ef at my house. They never complain about the foods I give them and interestingly, they never show the crazy cranky behavior at my house that seems to drive mom crazy at her house.
Maybe corn toasties/cereal and eggos’ for breakfast due effect them a little??? nah….. 🙂
