Cereal And Milk Turns Out To Be A Healthier Breakfast Alternative

February 16, 2011: 12:23 PM EST
British researchers who compared nutrient intake from a variety of different breakfasts found , first, that eating breakfast was better than skipping it, and ready-to-eat cereal-based breakfasts with milk had a much better macronutrient composition than other breakfasts. Data was obtained from a U.K. survey of adults aged 19 to 64 who each provided seven days of dietary information. Researchers found that eating breakfast was associated with a lower fat and higher carbohydrate intake over 24 hours compared with skipping breakfast. Cereal-based breakfasts were associated with less consumption of fat, saturated fatty acids and sugar, and greater intake of protein and carbohydrates. According to the researchers, “the results suggest that a cereal breakfast should be encouraged as part of a healthy lifestyle.”
