pI only buy General Mills cereals. My pa son has had Lucky Charms, Cheerios, French Toast Crunch,Trix, and the plain and fruit flavored Kix. I was just curious about the other "safe" ones I haven't tried. Which ones do you and your children eat that they like and have never given you a problem?br /

Kellogg's puts allergy alerts on their cereal and we've had no problems with them.
Is this the same in US?

We feel comfortable with GM Cheerios, Wheat Chex, and Rice Chex.

We avoid Kelloggs (USA). From what I understand, they do label for some allergens, but I've never seen a warning for peanuts on any of their cereals, and we all know they have PN and nut varieties.
It's all very confusing. We stick with GM.
Also, there have been stories on the boards about some kids reacting to Kelloggs cereals.

As far as I know, Kellogg's in Canada is safe. I have seen peanut allerts on some of their products, and I have called them in the past. I think this another US/Canada difference.

Yes, certain Kellogg's Canada cereals do have peanut warnings on them, such as Frosted Flakes, Honey Rice Krispies, Cadbury Crunchie, etc....
The Kelloggs Canada STAR WARS cereal is safe. The only warning on the box is "may contain traces of soybeans". It is manufactured in London, Ontario.
I wonder why General Mills USA puts peanut flour in their Star Wars cereal??? No reason to do this.

We give our PA son Total Corn Flakes and he loves them! No worries here.

Ditto here for Total. We eat plenty of Total Raisin Bran as well as Wheaties, and Cheerios. We haven't had any problem with our Friday morning junk breakfast cereals either--Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, etc. Unfortunately the same can't be said about Kellogg's in our household.

We use all the chex, mostly the higher fiber ones(multi bran and whole wheat), and I recently bought a box of the cinnamon toast crunch. Dd has had it a few times as a snack and no troubles. I have not used much of it though. I generally mix it into other things, like a cereal trail mix of sorts!
I have been wondering about branching out. The above and Cheerios are our regulars. becca

We eat just about every kind of GM cereals that don't say some type of nut or peanut. Always in the cabinet are Cheerios and Cocoa Puffs. We also eat on a regular basis Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Wheat Chex, Rice Chex, Corn Check, Multi-grain Chex, Trix, Total Raisin Bran...just to name a few I can think of! Current craze is "Green Slime."
I trust GM labeling and have never had a problem. I'm leary of Post (Kraft) and limit it to just the Oreo's cereal--only because my son loves it, has no reaction to it, and I'm a softy. I do not trust Kellogg's labeling so stay away from their products. We also eat Quaker bag cereals--Cocoa Blasts, Rice Puffs, Wheat Puffs, Fruity-O.
[son 4 1/2 years--anaphylatic reaction without ingestion to peanut @ 22 months; contact allergic to peanut, sesame seed, & chickpea; possible airborn reaction to peanut if in closed environment; CAP RAST also shows allergy to almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts (avoiding all tree nuts) but no known reaction to tree nuts]
