New Study Suggests Weed Killer Is Hiding in Your Kid’s Cheerios


Here’s What to Feed the Family Instead

If this morning’s headlines about trace amounts of a cancer-linked weed-killing chemical being found in some breakfast goodies sent you into a mild panic, you’re not alone. The new report conducted by the Environmental Working Group identified a number of popular breakfast foods and cereals that might contain higher amounts of the herbicide glyphosate, including Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, and more (you can see the full list here).

Before you go into full alarm mode, there are a number of things to remember. Quaker has released a statement suggesting that its products are safe to eat, but if that’s not enough to settle your stomach, there are plenty of products on the market that are glyphosate-free. Here are five alternatives.
