Mix Sweet and Plain Cereal Together

Gold Post Medal for All Time! 555 Posts

Mix Sweet and Plain Cereal TogetherI would buy unsweetened cereal along with sweetened versions and would mix them into one bowl, returning them back into their boxes. Then when the kids or my husband ate cereal, they ate HALF the sugar in each bowl. It wasn't completely not sweet so they'd still like it!


You can do this with cheerios, flakes and even granolas. The unsweetened (or store brand) versions were usually less expensive too. I also cut our milk with reconstituted dry milk, just to help our little struggling family at the time.

I do the same thing. I have no children at home, but I like granola mixed in with my cheerios. I buy whatever cereals are on sale and we mix at least 3 kinds together, get great taste and fewer calories. I don't buy the sugary kids stuff, but look for low sugar, low fat granola types. Yummy!
