Ingredients: Organic corn meal, Organic evaporated cane juice, sea salt.
Answer: EnviroKidz Gorilla Munch Cereal – This boxed cereal is an improvement over many of the cereals on the shelf, with only three ingredients, two of them organic, and no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. However, the 2nd ingredient, organic evaporated cane juice is sugar, and at 9 grams per serving, that's a lot of sugar to start out the morning – over 2 packets. Also, the processed corn meal often acts like sugar in the body and with 26 grams of carbohydrates and only 2 grams of protein and 1 gram of good fat per serving, this cereal does not give your child nearly enough fuel to get through the morning.

REAL Alternative: Slow-Cooked Oatmeal - your child will be getting complex-carbohydrates, good fats and the protein needed to keep the brain fueled for hours of focus and successful learning. The added berries give important phytonutrients that support a healthy immune system. See recipe section.
