Your breakfast should not be sugary. Although breakfast cereals can be convenient, many of the most popular choices are full of empty calories. These cereals will help you cut down on the sugar in your morning.
Smarter ways to add sweetness

Sugar is good. However, cereals can taste great without sugar. You can start with a good base cereal, such as these examples.
