Rocky Mount,North Carolina

* A new study from Yale University has found that cereals heavily marketed to children have 85% more sugar,65% less fiber and 60% more sodium than those aimed at adults.
* They also found that children that consumed higher sugar cereals more likely to consume higher volumes of cereal than those that consume lower sugar cereals.
*Among the worst: Reese's Puffs, Corn Pops, Lucky Charms,Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cap'n Crunch, Trix, Fruit Loops,Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles,and Cookie Crisp.
* Among the best: Kashi 7 Whole Grains Puffs and GoLean, Post Shredded Wheat Original and Wheat N' Bran, Kellogg's Mini Wheat's,and General Mills Fiber One.
*So what can you do ? Instead of feeding your child sweet,fruity cereals,try giving them a lower sugar cereal ( like the ones listed above )topped with fresh fruit and,if necessary,a very small sprinkling of sugar.

My late Mother always said in order to be the best athlete in any sport that one had to eat better quality healthy foods than your opponents, train harder and practice like there's no tomorrow and good things will happen on the track, field , court , and in the pool. One must eat like a champion,think like a winner or champion, train hard like a champion, practice like a champion, act like a winner on and off the field, and foremost play and perform like a winner/champion at all times.

Blogger Black buzz used the following menu prepared by his mother in training for Swimming,Football,Soccer,Basketball, Track and Baseball.
BREAKFAST : Pineapple, or Orange juice,large glass,preferably fresh;
Cup/Bowl of natural Wheat Germ cereal, with Goat's milk,
Poached egg on whole wheat toast,and fresh home made
Yogurt was eaten at every meal mixed with Black Strap Molasses.
Cantaloupe sprinkled with Paul Bragg wheat germ, and
honey. My mother purchased a whole host of Bragg Health
Food products from Bakersfield, California.
1 vitamin A &D capsule, 1 vitamin E capsule (30 milligrams
and 2 mineral tablets containing calcium,phosphorus and
a trace of iodine. Raw sea weed was always present along
with kelp. We used Kelp most of the time in place of the
salt. When I broke the record in the 100 yard dash in the
State of Maine in 1962 I was drinking a half cup of liquid
wheat germ oil a day. My mother purchased this wheat germ
from the Lackzoom store, located in downtown Pittsbrugh Pa, and we also purchased our specially cured beef bacon from the
the Cutaway Market in Butler, Pa.
I hated eating those one minute eggs over that wheat toast ,but it
was good for your body.

The carrot juice was very sweet and delicious and the Spinach juice was also quite tasty, and the other veggie juices we learned to appreciate for their outstanding nutritional value.
BREAKFAST: Apple juice, large glass,
Hot cakes with unbleached flour fortified with powered

My mother made all of her breads, rolls, biscuits and all bake goods with unbleached flour,honey and all natural products and the first time I ate white bread was at the "Original Hot Dog Shop in the Larimer section of Pittsburgh which was known by some as "Little Italy ".

We also had plenty of fresh nuts,dates, figs,fresh coconut and coconut milk, fresh pineapple, rasins,prunes, collard greens,mustard greens,kale greens, turnip greens,rape, pok salad, fresh rhubarb, mint tea, sassafras tea, and fresh ice cream was made during the winter.
