Why Is Battle Creek, Michigan Known As the Cereal City and How Did It Get Its Nickname?

Battle Creek, Michigan, produces more cereal that anywhere else, and is nicknamed the Cereal City.

Breakfast cereals were invented as a kind of health food a century ago for John Kellogg’s patients in a Battle Creek hospital.

The two men who commercialized the idea in the early 1900s were Kellogg’s brother and a man named Post.

Battle Creek is the world headquarters of Kellogg Company, and was founded by Will Keith Kellogg in 1906.
