3/4 cup of cereal and 1/2 cup milk equals one serving size and approximately 170 calories. This amount of cereal fits nicely into a fruit bowl. Unfortunately, most people use a soup bowl which holds about 3 servings. If you have two bowls of cereal in a soup bowl you are actually eating 6 servings and more than 750 calories.
