There is no need to feel guilty if you don't serve hot breakfasts to your kids. It turns out, children who eat cereal have some of the healthiest diets.

Cereal often gets a bad reputation since some are high in sugar. But researchers from Louisiana State University counter-emphasize that many are high in nutrients, contain whole grains and have added fiber.

Skipping breakfast is a bad idea. Those children wound up getting their energy from added sugars than breakfast eaters, and they ate less fiber, protein, and fewer nutrients overall.

This research was funded by the US Department of Agriculture and Kellogg's.
