Every year kids are having more then 10 pounds of suger in their breakfast

In the resent times cereal industries have gone to a new height of success.When ever health breakfast word upraise cereals come forward first. A widespread analysis by the Environmental Working Group of 1,556 cereals, including 181 marketed for children, finds on average kid’s are having 10 pounds of sugar per year in their breakfast, which is no so good for any one and the most highlighted issue is that it’s about kids.The analyzers have also found that kids like low sugar cereals but supermarkets have very few such products.The EWG analyzers found that the cereal which the kids are having sugar which contain two teaspoons per serving.Some contain more then this amount.

The Cereal companies can provide important nutrients that children need during critical times of growth and development without all the added sugar.
Less sweetened whole-grain hot cereals such as oatmeal with fruit on top are a much healthier choice, which contain a rich vitamins and minerals and no empty calories. The reality however is that hot cereals can be less suitable for busy families.People expect Excellent Source of Vitamin D or Good Source of Fiber from cereals.

The EWG’s also have observed that those brands are giving cartoon character in their box kids like those cereals most and it have be found that those of cereals cereals are loaded with extra added sugar. A typical serving can contain as much sugar as three Chips. EWG found that on average, 34 percent of the calories in children’s cereals come from sugar. For 2/3 of these cereals, a single serving contains more than a third of what experts recommend children consume in an entire day.In the market there are some cereals which  a single serving exceeds 60 percent of the daily amount of sugar which is suggested by health a organizations and health experts.

The Food and Drugs Administration still haven’t given a limit on the amount of added sugar allowed in products that make nutritional claims.People should know what amount of sugar should have per day to stay healthy they should know how much sugar is too much for saturated fat.

The Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture provided authoritative guidance in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, recommending that solid fats and added sugar together should constitute no more than about 5-to-15 percent of total calorie intake (USDA and DHHS 2010). Currently, Americans consume 22 teaspoons of sugar a day on average, which amounts to 16 percent of total calorie intake from added sugars alone (NCI 2010; USDA and DHHS 2010). The World Health Organization, the leading international authority on public health, has said since 2003 that sugars should make up less than 10 percent of total energy intake (WHO 2003).

In the American diet,cereals are not the only source of added sugar .Sugar are added everywhere in all types of food which are able-able in the supermarkets .From beverages to bread,tomato sauce to salad and many more. The USDA itself calls sugar “the number one food additive” (USDA 2003).
