Too many vitamins in kids' breakfast cereals, says report

Could your children be getting too much of a good thing at the breakfast table?

A new report says that children are ingesting "potentially unhealthy amounts" of Vitamin A, Zinc and Niacin, in their breakfast cereals.

The report comes from the Environmental Working Group , a health research advocacy organization.

It says outdated nutritional labeling and misleading marketing by food manufacturers could be to blame.

However, outside experts say many of the cereals tested were not popular among children.

The research looked at children who might have been taking supplements and all the food they ate throughout the day -- not just what they had for breakfast.
