Michelle Obama’s Food Restrictions Ban Lucky Charms, Frosted Flakes & Other Cereals

It’s due to the sugar content [1] of cereals and other breakfast foods that American kids often consume:

New rules stemming from the school lunch law championed by first lady Michelle Obama are banning popular children’s cereals like Frosted Flakes in daycare centers.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a final rule [2] Monday that will affect more than 3 million kids in daycare centers across the country. The regulation will only allow daycare centers to serve juice once a day, will ban fried foods, and encourages centers to not add honey to a child’s yogurt.
