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.

Fun Facts:

  • Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Horatio Magellan Crunch.
  • There are 2.7 billion boxes — enough to wrap around the earth thirteen times — of cereal sold every year.
