An average slice of regular crust pizza has approximately 3.8 grams of sugar. Compare that to one serving (approximately 0.75 to 1 cup) of these popular cereals:
- Frosted Flakes: 11 g
- Lucky Charms: 12.6 g
- Honey Nut Cheerios: 12.8 g
- Kellogg's Froot Loops: 12.1 g
But there are certainly healthier cereal options out there. For example, a serving of Corn Flakes only holds about 2.7 grams of sugar. One serving of Kellogg’s Special K contains approximately the same as a slice of regular crust pizza: 3.8 grams.
If you really want to be smart about breakfast eating, however, try switching out cereal -- or pizza -- for some oatmeal, fruit and/or vegetables, eggs, avocado or Greek yogurt.
