Nutritionist Claims Pizza Is a Healthier Breakfast Than Cereal

Looking to start your day off with a nutritious meal? Forget Cheerios. Instead, reach for a slice of pizza, says one dietitian.

On Monday, blogger and dietitian Chelsey Amer caused a stir when she told the Chicago Tribune that a greasy slice of pizza is healthier than a bowl of cereal with milk.

“You may be surprised to find out that an average slice of pizza and a bowl of cereal with whole milk contain nearly the same amount of calories,” Amer said. “However, pizza packs a much larger protein punch, which will keep you full and boost satiety throughout the morning.”

She acknowledges that pizza isn’t necessarily a health food, but maintains that it’s a more balanced meal than a typical bowl of sugar flakes.

But don’t take that as license to turn Papa John’s into a breakfast staple. New York-based dietitian Keri Gans says that cereal can be a perfectly healthy breakfast option — yes, healthier than pizza — as long as you’re smart about it.

“Cereal can absolutely be a vehicle for getting important nutrients into your diet to start your day off right,” Gans tells The Post.
