Good morning! Maybe it’s afternoon, but anytime of day is the perfect time of day to eat breakfast foods. Let me ask you a serious question—do you reserve oatmeal for chilly days?

So here, I’m talking about cereals that are big on vitamins and minerals—not those jam-packed with chocolate, marshmallows, and food dyes.
