Quick Look at Low Sodium Cereals

Quote of the Day

Success consists of going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.

— Winston Churchill


Since I have identified that my current ready-to-eat breakfast cereal has too much salt (blog post), I need to find a low-salt replacement. So I went back to this web site and put together a list of low-salt replacement candidates. I think I will check out some of the shredded wheat options.

When winter hits, I like a hot cereal option. I may try some of the Cream of Wheat options − they are made locally and I like to support local businesses.
