Food for Thought


How old is too old to be eating children’s cereal?

Furrylittlegnome asks this to herself while eating a bowl of Frosted Flakes.  Yes, Tony the Tiger is still on the front of the blue, white and orange box.  Yes, each serving is still laced with 21 grams of sugar, and yes, they still taste gr-r-reat!

While each serving is a whopping 220 calories, there are some benefits:  50% of one’s daily allowance of Vitamin B6, 50% of one’s daily allowance of Folic Acid and 20% respectively of Vitamins A, C and D.  Granted, that is all based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

Let’s not forget about the embarrassment.  Last week, while furrylittlegnome was eating some Lucky Charms, a visitor came to the office and noticed the leprechaun right away.  Gnome doesn’t know if the shocked look on her face was that Lucky Charms was still in production or that a 30-something year old was eating them.

Gnome had a tough choice to make when she bought her cereal this morning.  It was between Frosted Flakes or Lucky Charms.  She purchased both and will save the “magically delicious” treat for tomorrow!

  1. Dear Gnome, I think cereal not healthy food even for children. You have so many healthier choices…, but it’s my opinion.
