Hooray for National Cereal Day!

Since the end of the 19th century, cereal has been America’s most popular breakfast food. And it’s not just for breakfast. We eat cereal for lunch, a snack, or even an evening meal when we don’t feel like cooking 😉

Now we find cereal in cakes, cookies, and bars like riced cereal treats.  It’s the ultimate on-the-go comfort food!

Whether you prefer healthy oats or sugar-laden cereals, celebrate National Cereal Day with a bowl of your favorite.
