cereal serving sizes


Look, General Mills, you and your industry cereal-making friends need to level with us, here.

Who in the hell eats 1 & 1/2 cups of cereal and calls it a morning!? I think we all know the average serving size should be 2-3 bowlfuls. Yes, the calorie count will probably be upwards in the 400s, but at least we'd be real. No more of this 1.5 cups of rice krispies jibber-jabber. Just hardcore mother-fucking TRUTH. Pour some milk and eat a bowl of THAT.

  1. Fun fact from Dr. Saedi - cereal box portion sizes are not the same as what we generally think of as 3/4 cup, which is usually their portion size of choice. The 3/4 cup they measure by is actually smaller than our 3/4 cup that we typically use. Apparently this is allowed, since they disclose the grams. Ridiculous
