Jonny Steel, a spokesman for said: "Consumers can end up thinking they are choosing a healthy cereal, often because some sound healthy or simply look healthy because of how they are marketed.
"Yet, as with any product bought, shoppers need to make sure they read the nutritional information on the packet to understand the content."

Dr. Iverson's Comment
Well, someone’s starting to get it right. The English are excelling beyond the Yanks!
This is a subject I have dedicated an entire chapter in my new book, Nature’s Diet. I write about how breakfasts differ as we compare from country to country around the world.   Traditionally in South America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East they do not eat sweets at breakfast. Rather the breakfast consists of hearty foods, like their dinner.
 In Europe, Australia, and of course USA we have traded hearty for sweet and stimulated; donuts and coffee. Even if you think you are doing right with a low sugar breakfast cereal, it is quite possible it is loaded carbohydrates that break down into sugar in the body. Add that cereal with juice, toast, jam, fruit, and sugared coffee and you have a prescription for blood sugar imbalances. 
Look for my book Nature’s Diet to be released after summer. You will be absolutely impressed with a nutrition guide that answers your most important questions.
In the meantime, steer clear of the sweets~
