In Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder it mentions how it was used as a breakfast cereal with milk on.

So I'd say good-pinny-wearing-homespun-mother category grin

Fine as a one off treat/stressed out morning.

Actually depends on if it was plain/sweet/satled/butter?

What's the difference between pop corn and puffed wheat or rice crispies? Or cornflakes?

(Can you believe there is a book on the social history of popcorn!!)

Thats why I did my 2nd post when I hear popcorn I think of cinema popcorn laiden with salt and butter <drool>

But plain popcorn is different.

So my first answer was about popcorn with lots of salt etc. However compared to some breakfast cereals anyway there probably isnt much difference.

it's probably more nutritious than cocoa pops. With milk sounds quite nice smile

I gave my unborn baby icecream with choc sauce for breakfast this morning blush DD had porridge though.

Did you pop it yourself?

I think you;d have to eat quite a lot to get much energy out of it - it's mostly air.

my mom gave my sister jaffa cakes for breakie every morning because it was all she would eat hmm

I wouldn't worry about popcorn
