Eat This Instead Choice Vs. Cheerios

March 02, 2009|By KATE SHATZKIN

Tempted to buy the America's Choice brand of honey nut oat cereal at Super Fresh, instead of the Honey Nut Cheerios? You'll end up with an extra 80 milligrams of sodium per serving if you do. The Honey Nut Cheerios also has 115 milligrams of beneficial potassium per serving; the America's Choice brand has none.
