Kellogg Co has agreed to drop advertising claims that Rice Krispies will strengthen children's immune systems, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission said on Thursday. Kellogg had agreed in February 2009 to stop claiming that its Frosted Mini Wheats were "clinically shown to improve kids' attentiveness by nearly 20 percent." In an advertising campaign that began in about July 2009, Kellogg began advertising on cereal boxes that Rice Krispies "now helps support your child's immunity."

Brace yourself. This is going to get weird. Brought back from the crypt by the website io9 , here is what is quite possibly the most disturbing commercial ever filmed. For breakfast food. And not just because of the nutritional implications. Any coulrophobics out there? Avert your gaze. Sugar Rice Krinkles seem to have been Post's competitor to Rice Krispies, except with a sugar coating, like Frosted Flakes.

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. -- Kellogg says it will pull health claims from its Rice Krispies cereal box due to the public's growing concern about swine flu. The food company began adding antioxidants to the cereal last year and noted on the cereal box that these antioxidants help support the immune system. But Kellogg said Wednesday it will phase the message out of its packages over the next few months, given the public attention on swine flu. It will not alter the ingredients in the cereal.

Really large food in grotesque proportions has always been something to admire. Big tanks of chili or those semitrucks they turn into portable barbecues to roast 100 sides of beef. It reassures me that we are in a country so plentiful we will never ever run out of sustenance. At least on that one particular day. So how could I not support what was purported to be the world's largest Rice Krispies treat, which they were assembling down at the schoolyard the other day? As a connoisseur of senseless group activities, I found it just crazy fun. I didn't actually help to build the Rice Krispies treat; that seemed too much work.

When the Glutton heard about Simon L.A.'s junk-food platter, it was like an offer to test drive the SUV of desserts: large, ostentatious, impractical and, despite it all, difficult to resist. Unfortunately, it's even harder to endure. Kerry Simon's dessert sampler ($25) knows no moderation: Rice Krispies treats, vanilla milkshake, cotton candy, cookies, miniature snowballs and chocolate cupcakes, doughnut holes, chocolate ice cream and blackberry sorbet. Even the Glutton had to wonder: Why?

Want to feed your kids a healthy breakfast without drowning them in sugar? It's a challenge ? but it's getting a little easier. Major cereal makers are rolling out less-sugary versions of some of their sweetest brands. In December, General Mills ? maker of Lucky Charms, Trix and many other breakfast staples ? announced that it would cut the sugar levels in all of its children's cereals to 9 grams or less per 3/4 cup serving. Last month, Post Foods announced that it had already lowered the sugar in its Fruity Pebbles and Cocoa Pebbles cereals to 9 grams per serving.

TO THIS DAY, I BELIEVE MY MOTHER HAS THE mysterious ability to see things before they happen. She has a Chinese saying for what she knows. Chunwang chihan : If the lips are gone, the teeth will be cold. Which means, I suppose, one thing is always the result of another. But she does not predict when earthquakes will come, or how the stock market will do. She sees only bad things that affect our family. And she knows what causes them.
