If you’ve ever eaten a bowl of children’s breakfast cereal, you’ll know that sugar is the most obvious culprit. According to a report issued by the Environmental Working Group, a child who eats one bowl of cereal every day for one year consumes a total of 10 pounds of sugar.

The report was based on the analysis of about 200 kids’ breakfast cereals. Besides causing tooth decay, refined sugar has absolutely no nutritional value, and when consumed in large doses, it can result in obesity and diabetes.
