Real whole oats (or other hot healthful cereals) take 3 minutes to cook in the microwave. With a handful of dried cranberries, or some fresh fruit thrown in, they are hard to beat. It is a myth that prepackaged foods are necessary.
But in answer to your question, I agree completely with nelie. It was a great ad campaign to sell cereal. Most prepackaged cereals are loaded with sugar, salt, chemicals, etc.
