It's National Cereal Day and that my sound very trivial but there's a lot more to cereal than you can even imagine!!! But before we begin with all the things about cereal you don't know,....what's your guess as to what the #1 Selling Breakfast Cereal

According to In the 1800's Cereal used to be thought as the Wonder Food for those who were ailing!  The Website claims the following:

Strange that the invention of breakfast cereal was founded on the fact that the American diet of the mid 1800's was a poor one packed with protein, booze and caffeine. Or maybe it’s not so strange. After all, cereal was considered a remedy – a sort of 19th-century health or wonder food for the ailing masses.
So if you’re raising a milk-sopped spoonful of oats or bran or wheat today, give a little nod to 

National Cereal Day, which honors this classic morning meal and midnight snack on March 7.
