Each year National Cereal Day is celebrated on March 7th. Cereal has been a long time breakfast favorite across America, and it is estimated that around 43% of Americans eat cereal each day. Cereal was originally invented as an alternative to the previously popular meat heavy breakfasts, and popularized during the push towards healthier diets that occurred around the time of the industrial revolution. It was largely encouraged by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, who hoped to eliminate fatty and greasy foods from people diets, and eventually went on to invent corn flakes. While most of today's cereals are far more sugary, cereal has stood the test of time and evolved to offer a wide range of brands and varieties. Recently, Kilbourne students voiced their opinions about cereal and shared their favorites.
