Toddler being spoon-fed breakfast

Cereal has been a mainstay of family breakfasts for over a century and it’s easy to see the appeal. It’s quick, convenient, inexpensive, and widely popular with kids. Of course, part of the reason little ones love cereal is that most brands are sweetened with added sugars and other not-so-healthy ingredients. The bright colors mask the ridiculous amounts of sugar hidden behind those adorable little marshmallows.

Let’s face it -- cereals like Froot Loops, Cocoa Puffs, Trix, and Fruity Pebbles sure do taste good, but they are essentially just desserts (or worse) masquerading as breakfast. You would be better off feeding vegetables to your child if only your kiddo would eat them. But we have good news! There are plenty of alternatives on the market to serve toddlers without overloading them with sugar.

From official recommendations to your own gut instinct, we'll take you through how to make these choices.

When to move from a bassinet to a crib
