*** Today’s cereal manufacturers are improving their brand’s nutritional value.  Although I’m in favor of consuming vitamins and minerals from whole and natural foods; this particular cereal does offer a good source of calcium and vitamin D.  Next week, I’ll post Kellogg’s Raisin Bran cereal which actually contains more teaspoons of sugar; however, it offers more grams of fiber.  I’ll also explain why fiber matters.
