October is cold cereal month.
Cold cereal makes a quick, nutritious, low-cost
and portable breakfast. Ready-to-eat
cereal products supply important nutrients.
When combined with low-fat milk, cold
cereal makes a meal that is high in protein
and low In cholesterol and fat. Milk and
grains compliment each other nutritionally
since they are from different food groups.
Most cereals are fortified with at least 25
percent of the recommended intake of
essential vitamins and minerals and may
provide up to twenty-six grams of fiber per
cup of cereal.
