Check the glycaemic load (GI x portion side) - very very high. Indicates a massive whack of glucose to the system.

Well... why would you want to give your kid a massive wallop of sugar for breakfast? Why not something nutritionally healthy?

Depends on the variable you use: cornflakes have a higher GI and therefore higher glycaemic load than bran. But they lack the fibre of bran which reduces glycaemic response.

There's lots of medical leaders saying they want to choose more "resilient" students. That's the wrong approach. We have a US system now where compassionate doctors are beat down first in a highly toxic environment, while the unfeeling, callous doctors are highly "resilient."

Pure sugar, I’m afraid. Massive insulin spike in the morning, then hungry by 10am. Little to no nutritive value (except for vitamins which they’re fortified with but which you can get elsewhere). Exceptions: All Bran, Weetbix

That children can still fall off their bikes regardless of how safe you make a street. And if they hit their heads, the consequences can be very serious. Whereas there are no *downsides* to wearing a helmet.
