What's lurking in your favorite breakfast food?

Sugar. That's what. Lots and lots of sugar.

I know just as much as you do, being a busy parent makes convenience foods all the more tempting. Sometimes 'healthy and convenient' are two words in our society, that don't mix well.

A story from the QCTimes.com revealed that, shockingly, ice cream could be a healthier breakfast than many cereals children eat. My youngest is an ice cream lover and would rejoice if I let her have some before school.

HealthGrove, a health and nutrition data site by Graphiq, identified the breakfast cereals with more sugar than a scoop of ice cream.

You might be surprised to know that many of the cereals even are labeled as a healthier choice, giving you the perception it's healthier and good for you.

Maybe a bowl of ice cream every once in awhile won't hurt a thing for breakfast.
