What’s to Eat?: Healthy Foods for Hungry Children

Cereal with low-fat (1%) milk is a favorite, but sweetened cereal can have a lot of added sugar. Check the Nutrition Facts label before buying. Although the percent daily values on food labels are based on calorie levels for adults, they can still be used to select more nutrient-rich cereals (and other foods).

If your child prefers a sweet taste, jazz up unsweetened cereal with sliced peaches or bananas, straw­berries, or blueberries.
