that cornflakes are still being served in American restaurants and
hotels, and constitute an important meal for children, a claim supported
by scientific research.

manufacturer, said: “We are very happy that the Saudi Ministry of
Health has taken this action, which we hope will go some way towards
correcting the misinformation.

its heritage and continued commitment to superior nutrition through the
production of healthy foods.”
