The cereal aisle at the grocery store is filled with plenty of options to fill your bowl, but don’t be fooled by the colorful packaging. Scientists and doctors warn of the consequences of a diet high in sugar, and one major sugar bomb is cereal. Authority Nutrition reports, “Starting the day with a high-sugar breakfast cereal will spike your blood sugar and insulin levels. A few hours later, your blood sugar may crash, and your body will crave another high-carb meal or snack, thus creating a vicious cycle of overeating.”
The article goes on to point out that even though cereal brands tout health benefits, sugar is a leading ingredient in this processed food. With heavy marketing towards children, parents are especially susceptible to purchasing cereal for their family. To avoid a Froot Loop fail, skip this aisle completely when shopping at the grocery store.
