Report: Breakfast cereals overloaded with sugar

BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Kids who eat a typical bowl of cereal every morning are consuming more than ten pounds of sugar a year.

A new study by the Environmental Working Group in Washington, DC says all that sugar consumption is contributing to childhood obesity and other health problems. The non-profit group also claims cereal makers and regulators are doing almost nothing to address the issue.

Kellogg's "Honey Smacks" cereal is one of the worst offenders, measuring more than 50-percent sugar by weight.
