How do you start your morning? Do you eat toast or a bowl of cereal? If you are a cereal lover when what type of cereal do you eat for breakfast? Do you eat Cheerios? Rice Krispies? Or, do you enjoy a bowl of Lucky Charms or something other than that? Whatever cereal you want each morning, enjoy it even more on national cereal day.
March 7th is all about cereal as it is national cereal day. The great thing about this breakfast meal is that there are various cereals to choose from, and you never have to settle on one type. Some cereals contain more sugar than others, and if you are trying to watch your caloric intake or are prone to cavities, you may steer clear of the sugary cereals. You may stick to other cereals low in sugar, such as Cheerios, Rice Krispies, or Shredded Wheat. The milk that you pour into your cereals that do not contain too much sugar can give it the flavor you want. You can also add sweeteners such as stevia that will not add calories to your cereal either.
The other thing about cereal is that there is a good chance that you grew up with it. You would have fond memories of your favorite childhood cereal when you think back on it. There is a good chance that you enjoyed sugary cereals such as Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops, or Count Chocula. If that was the case, did your parents all of a sudden switch you from eating those sugary cereals to a healthier version sometime during your childhood? Chances are the pediatrician you went to told them to stop feeding that to you. Enjoying them once in a while is perfectly okay, though!
History Of National Cereal Day
In the 1800s and prior, Americans lived on an unhealthy diet consisting of red meat. The remedy for that was for Americans to begin eating healthy food that was difficult to digest, which consisted of bran nuggets. Dr. James Caleb was the one who invented the bran nuggets, and he used them to help those who had injuries or illnesses recovering in his sanitarian. Later on, Dr. John Kellogg liked the idea and took on the picture. Instead of bran, Dr. Kellogg used granola to give to his patients. Later on, these doctors found methods to use corn as nuggets, which was behind the establishment of cornflakes. Then in 1939, the inventions of Dr. James Caleb and Dr. John Kellogg evolved further and marketed to children as tasty and healthy breakfasts. Since then, cereal became a popular breakfast option for everyone regardless of their age.
