Putting Sugar in Perspective

Breakfast cereal contributes less than 3 percent of the daily sugar intake for kids.1 Yet it adds taste, texture and enjoyment to cereal, while encouraging the consumption of fibre, vitamins and minerals – essential nutrients that they might otherwise miss.

Did you know that a glass of orange juice (125ml) has the same sugar content as a 30g serving of Kellogg’s® Nutri-Grain®. And, a 30g serve of Rice Bubbles® contains 2.7g of sugar while two slices of wholegrain toast with jam contain more than three times as much, or 10g of sugar.2
