My son is very into Cinnamon Life and Cherrios cereals and we feel safe with these also. ANy safe alternatives to use? I would like to introduce maybe Kelloggs corn flakes He didn't really go for Corn Chex or the like. As you can see I am going toward the less sugar varieties.. Has anyone eaten Rice Krispies on a regular basis? thanks again, Kathy ANn

Kellogg's recently had a recall on their corn flakes...some other cereal was packaged in the box! It was a wheat and milk alert, if my memory serves me correctly. (Someone out there correct me, if I'm wrong. Thanks!)
Just me, maybe, but Kellogg's does not fall within my comfort zone. I feel they have too many recalls.

thanks Donni,
just called Kelloggs and they were less than friendly. I don't know why but she was very short and wanted not alot of questions. I guess maybe I'll stick to General Mills. Any new General Mills cereals that are soy and pa tna free? thanks. kathy Ann

Sorry I can't help with soy but I'm sure another can.
Less sugary cereals my son (5) likes are: Rice Chex, Total Raisin. I don't have any in stock or I'd look at the labels for soy.
I don't worry about sugary cereals. My comfort is that since he doesn't get as many pies, cakes, cookies, pastries, etc. as most kids do, the sugar in cereal isn't all that much. Especially along with the fact that the vitamins are usually "sprayed" with the sugar on the cereal.

My dd eats Rice Krispies now and before PA/TNA. We so far haven't had a problem with them. She also eats Kashi Cereals heres my list of safe ones made in a peanut/tree nut free facility.
GOLEAN Ready to Drink beverages
Kashi Pilaf
TLC crackers - all flavors
Autumn Wheat cereal
Puffed Kashi
Honey Puffed Kashi
GOLEAN cereal
Heart to Heart cereal
Good Friends cereal
GOLEAN waffles, both flavors.
We so far have eaten the Autumn Wheat Cereal, and the Honey Puffed Kashi. Also the TLC Crackers.
For oatmeal we use McCanns they are peanut and tree nut free.
Hope this helps.

I too feel that my kids eat less junk in general than most so I don't worry too much about sugary cereals. The following are our staples, we are PN/Soy allergic:
Lucky Charms
Cheerios
Apple Cinnamon Cheerios
Rice Chex
Kix
Quaker- Toasted Oatmeal Squares Cinnamon, Life (regular cinnamon and honey graham)
We use Erewhorn Brown Rice Crispies and Old Wessex oatmeal (used these before without incident)
I often mix the sugary cereals half and half in baggies for take along snacks with something like cheerios or chex.

I just spoke to a woman named Paula at General Mills about the safety of the other varieties of Cherrios. She said only the Regular and the Apple Cinnamon were safe and all other types, Team,Frosted and whole grain Cherrios were not and were made with Almond meal. She also claimed that it is on the boxes of these.. I didn't know since we don't eat these but just wanted to post in case anyone else did not know .. thanks for all your help again Kathy Ann

We don't eat a lot of baked goods or sweets in our family as well so I let the kids eat cereal(I grew up eating it in the morning as well).
They eat Rice Krispies
Golden Grahams
Lucky Charms(I think lately due to the Shrek watches [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img] )
Captain Crunch
Raisin Bran
Fruit Loops
Cheerios
I always add frozen blueberries to dd's
but picky pa son won't have anything to do with them [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]
I've never had a problem with Kellog's or General Mills
Or Quaker Oats

My kids love Lucky Charms, Honeycombs, Frosted Flakes, Fruit Loops to name a few. These are their favorites.
Kathy thanks for posting about the other flavor Cheerios. I was thinking of getting the frosted ones for ds and he is pa and tna......wow thanks alot. I had not gotten them or read the label bc I am weary of tring new things. So now I know they are off limits.

FYI-
Kellogg's Frosted Flakes have no warnings in the USA, but in Canada they are labelled as "may contain traces of peanuts".
