Are GMO’s in your cereal?

gmo's in your cerealI remember growing up watching commercials of Froot Loops that played over and over again.  Kids at school would talk about it and I remember wanting to try it.  My mother never let me eat it because of the colors and sugar it contained.  But little did I know that she was ahead of her time.  Now years later with my own family I limit the cereals in our house.  what cereal should i eat CollageI prefer to eat whole foods that do not come from a box, but then again who has time to cook every meal.  Cereals are fast and easy and many parents rely on them to help them feed their children before they head off to school.  I think we must look for the right kind of cereal for our children.  Always look at the ingredients list.  Ask yourself does the ingredients list look super long? Does it have high sugar content, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, GMO’s (non organic canola oil, corn, sugar)? Personally I prefer to buy certified organic cereals that are GMO free or non GMO.  But I still look at the ingredient list to make sure it still a good and healthy cereal. Recently GMO Free USA posted an article on testing they did on Froot Loops.  They state that the test showed the cereal to contain GMO’s and insecticide.  I am sure that many cereals on the market today also would test positive for these things.  Do you know what’s in your cereal?

    The natures path one is super delisious! I would still opt for fresh fruit or a smoothie. Its better for our personal health and the health of our planet. We also have to consider the milk(hopefully plant based milk) when it comes to eating cereal

      If we all do our part things will start changing. By buying foods that are not genetically engineered it will change the way big companies do things. Organics is huge right now because people are choosing to eat healthier. As more and more people do this it forces companies to sell better products.

    When it comes to children we have to be particularly careful with what we feed them. Their bodies are growing so quickly and cells are dividing and being created you want those cells to be created from non mutated food.

    Hey Miss Right what is your favorite flavor of the Natures Path ones? I have tried a couple and enjoy the hemp one but the pumpkin one is good too.
