Cereal can also bring back childhood memories. Many cereal companies used small toys as part of their boxes. Perhaps you remember eating as much cereal you could to get a new box and a new toy. You may also recall the thrill of pouring out the cereal to find the toy in your bowl, rather than your brothers or sisters.

Cereal was first developed in 1800 as a hard to digest and unappetizing health food. It was made of small pieces of bran and was believed to regulate a diet that was heavily meat-based. The majority of Americans at the time ate pork and beef. People who wanted to improve society at the time thought they could change their diets to bring about social and spiritual change.

To help his patients at his sanitarium, Dr. James Caleb created bran nuggets. A sanitarium was a place people could go to to heal from injury or illness, or for restorative spa treatments. The sanitarium also had a spiritual aspect. Dr. Caleb hosted prominent people, including the founder of the Seventh Day Adventist religion.

John Kellogg was interested in healthy foods for his patients. With his brothers, he created granola as well as many other non-meaty breakfast foods. They discovered a way to make wheat flake, instead of a nugget. Corn flakes were created!

Cereal wouldn’t take the sweet taste we know today until 1939. This sweet creation was named Ranger Joe Popped Wheat Honnie, and was targeted at children. The rest, as they say, is history. Cereal has been using the TV and radio ads to appeal to children from that point forward.

This invention has been a staple of our lives for many years. You can spend your time learning about it! Did you know that cereal is named after Ceres? Ceres was the Roman goddess for harvest and agriculture. In 1909, cereal came with more than a plastic toy. You would receive the Funny Jungleland Moving Pictures Book if you bought two Corn Flakes.
