    There's a LOT of sugar in it o.
    I have to mix it with the unsweetened one first.

    I'm kidding, of course, these days show me which ones don't have too much sugar, but I have to medicate myself with the honey nut cherios one otherwise, I'd be a bad mom, since that's all my son likes to eat these days.

    That's some scary stuff. I cook everything myself now and I freeze it. from meatloaf to chicken noodle soup, other than cereal on pop tarts, the overly processed crap has diminished greatly in my pantry and freezer/refrigerator. Now if I can just get him to eat ewedu and gbegiri with me, I'd be set.
