Breakfast cereals

Breakfast cereals vary widely in salt content, so read labels carefully. Some of the most popular contain between 250 and 300 milligrams of sodium in a serving, though many people eat double that much at breakfast. And beware the “healthy” label; some of the highest-sodium cereals are those we consider healthiest, such as raisin bran. Kellogg’s Raisin Bran has 340 milligrams per serving ; instant oatmeal has as much as 350 milligrams per serving, depending on the flavor. So READ THE LABEL.
