Looking to start your day off with a nutritious meal? Forget Cheerios. Instead, reach for a slice of pizza , says one dietitian . New York-based dietitian Keri Gans says that cereal can be a perfectly healthy breakfast option — yes, healthier than pizza — as long as you’re smart about it.

As the saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So why do we give our kids a bowl of cereal before dashing out the door?

And why would any drink a glass of milk when there’s already milk in your cereal? Confusing, but let’s move on).

But is it really true? Is pizza truly a better breakfast than cereal?

The Daily Meal asked dietitian Chelsey Amer to weigh in. She said that because a slice of pizza contains more fat and much less sugar, you’re less likely to experience a big sugar crash before mid-morning.

On the other hand, Cara Rosenbloom, a Toronto-based registered dietitian and owner of Words to Eat By, says the two options aren’t really that different. “Both are processed grains with some dairy—milk or cheese,” Rosenbloom tells Today’s Parent. “Cereal is higher in sugar, and pizza is higher in salt.”
