Is your breakfast cereal bowl filled with calories, sugar and sodium? Even if you think you're choosing wisely -- such as Cheerios or Honey Bunches of Oats -- you may be surprised. While these two cereals are among the most popular brands with the biggest sales, they are not the healthiest choices.

Cereal is in the pantries of more than 90 percent of U.S. households. More than 2 billion boxes of cereals are sold annually. 93 percent of us consume ready-to-eat cereal. When choosing a breakfast cereal, read labels. Look for a cereal that is low in calories with low or no sodium. Do avoid cereals with added sugar. Don't be fooled by health claims on the package.
