Default Goodbye Tony the Tiger?

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Kellogg Co., the world's largest cereal maker, has agreed to raise the nutritional value of cereals and snacks it markets to children.

The Battle Creek, Mich., company avoided a lawsuit threatened by parents and nutrition advocacy groups worried about increasing child obesity. Kellogg intends to formally announce its decision Thursday.

The company said it won't promote foods in TV, radio, print or Web site ads that reach audiences at least half of whom are under age 12 unless a single serving of the product meets these standards:

--No more than 200 calories.
--No trans fat and no more than 2 grams of saturated fat.
--No more than 230 milligrams of sodium, except for Eggo frozen waffles.
--No more than 12 grams of sugar, not counting sugar from fruit, dairy and vegetables.
WOW...this means that the only Tiger representing an empty...over-hyped... valueless... product will be....Who Dey!!!!
