What’s better than a bowl of cereal in the morning? We say, nothing! The first cereal grains were domesticated by early primitive humans, out 8000 years ago. 50% of Americans start their day with cereal. The first ever cereal, Granula, was invented in 1863 by Dr James Caleb Jackson. Did you know, Kellogg’s corn flakes were eaten by astronauts aboard Apollo 11 which made the first landing on the Moon. The cereal was mixed with fruit and pressed into cubes to make them easier to eat in the conditions of zero gravity.
