The claim is technically a legal requirement, but, like a StealthCigaretteCommercial, the companies have hidden the obvious beneath the implications. After all -- ''really!'' -- if you're still hungry after eating a bowl of cereal, you don't cook yourself some bacon and eggs, or make toast. You just grab the cereal box and pour yourself another bowl.

After all -- ''really!'' -- if you're you were sitting down to the princely spread of that complete breakfast, Choco Woofers would be furthest thing from your mind. The only time you'd want to 'complete' a breakfast with Choco Woofers would be if you'd already eaten some and were still hungry after eating a bowl of cereal, you don't cook yourself some bacon and eggs, or make toast. You hungry, in which case you'd just grab the cereal box and pour yourself another bowl.

Simple. Just set your sugar-laden product (in a nice place setting) alongside toast, bacon, eggs, cheese, pancakes, fruit, vegetables, orange juice, milk, etc., and advertise that the cereal is an essential ''part'' of this complete breakfast. After all, if Choco Woofers are right at home amidst all those other wholesome foods, they must be perfectly healthful, right?

Ironically, in the 1950s and 60s, having sugar added to a breakfast cereal was actually its ''selling point.'' You normally added your own sugar to your cereal anyway, and a pre-sweetened cereal meant you could save a step (and parents could know ''how much'' added sugar their kids were getting). By the end of the 1970s, though, [[ScienceMarchesOn sugar had become demonized]], so sugary cereals took steps to [[UnfortunateIngredients downplay their sugar content]]: They changed their names (e.g. from Sugar Smacks to Honey Smacks, or from Sugar Frosted Flakes to just Frosted Flakes), and they started splitting the sugar into multiple types so that "sugar" no longer appeared at the top of the ingredients list (e.g. instead of being "Sugar, wheat flour, oat flour, ...", the ingredients now read "Wheat and oat flour, sugar, glucose-fructose, ...", even though the contents of the box were identical).
