The General Mills Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal contains 9 grams of sugar--a bit more than 2 teaspoons--in a 1-ounce serving, the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Giant Grahams 6 grams of sugar, the Cloverland Dairy chocolate milk 26 grams, the four-ounce container of orange juice 13 grams. That's 54 grams of sugar in this elementary school breakfast, or 13,5 teaspoons, which translates as 216 calories worth of sugar.
How does a six-year-old manage that much sugar?
First, you pour the chocolate milk over the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
