Cereals still contain three quarters of a child's daily intake of sugar

Coco Pops has reduced its sugar content by 40 percent, but a bowl still contains almost half of the recommended daily sugar intake of a child from seven to ten years, with 46 percent

When Kellogg's reduced Coco Pops sugar content by 40 percent after government pressure last month, parents were outraged that the taste was not as good.

Despite this huge change in recipe, the cereal still contains almost half of a child's daily recommended intake of sweet things in a single bowl, a new study reveals.

And although the Rice Krispies sugar content was also reduced by 20 percent this year, one container still contains more than 37 percent of a child's recommended daily intake of sugar.

Some cereals, including Frosties, contain almost three-quarters of a child's daily intake of sugar in a 30-gram container, the data show.

Frosties is the sweetest cereal on the market, with a small container of 30 g which is 71.25 percent of a recommended daily amount of sugar for a child of seven to ten years of age, which is 24 g.

That's equivalent to 17.1 g of sugar in each dish, the equivalent of 4.26 teaspoons of sugar, almost half of a can of Coca Cola or a little over 3 fingers of Kit Kat, according to the study of the kitchen retailer and Sinks-Taps.com bathroom.

Coco Pops has reduced sugar so that a bowl that used to contain 62.5 percent of a child's daily amount of sugar now uses 46.25 percent, almost half of what it should eat in a day.

Even the simple Rice Krispies, which has reduced sugar by 20 percent this year, still contains more of the sweet things you could be expert with 9 g per cup without milk.

The next most sugary cereal the study found was Morrisons' own Choco Pillows, which contains 70 percent of a child's recommended daily sugar intake.

Surprisingly, the data found that nearly 60 cereals on supermarket shelves contain at least half of a 24 g child's recommended daily sugar intake.

Some cereals that you would expect are high in sugar, such as Nestle's Cookie Crisp, which contains 56.25% of a child's daily sugar content in a recommended bowl.

But others are more surprising. Multigrain Cheerios may seem healthy, but still contains 47.5 percent of a child's daily sugar content, the equivalent of two Kit Kat fingers on each plate.

The study also revealed less sugary grains, classified from left to right, with Morrisons Puffed Wheats being the least sugary on the left. However, with a container that is 27 percent of a child's daily sugar recommendations, a container contains even more than you would expect

Even less-sweetened cereals contain more than a quarter of a child's daily amount of sugar.

Morrisons & Puffed Wheats, which turned out to be the least sugary cereal available, still contains 27 percent of a child's daily sugar intake.

The study found that proprietary cereals on average contained less sugar than brand-name rivals.

The whole wheat biscuits that Weetabix made famous are the lowest in sugar at Sainsbury's, with 9.7 percent less sugar than brands from other stores and Weetabix.

Meanwhile, each Weetos brand version of Tesco, Asda and Morrisons has 4.76% less sugar than the main brand.

Unfortunately, not all cereals have healthier alternatives bought in the store. With the fairly recent effort to reduce the sugar content of Coco Pops, each alternative of chocolate inflated rice from the supermarket brand has between 3.75 percent and 18.9 percent more sugar.

The amounts of sugar are based on a modest recommended serving size of 30 g with 125 ml of semi-skimmed milk (the milk itself contains 6 g of sugar).
