Cereal came about because by the mid-1800’s people began to realize that eating meat, drinking alcohol and washing it all down with coffee may not be the healthiest way to eat. They, of course, were right. However some, like John Harvey Kellogg, had the right idea they too went a little too far to the extreme insisting that daily enemas and harsher treatments were required to keep one healthy. Will, his brother, promoted Kellogg’s in a lighter mode and made the business what it is today. National Cereal Day has been celebrated since 2005.
