Create a table containing the calorie, protein, fat, and name data for the first five cereals. Label the variables.

Calories = Calories(1:5);
Protein = Protein(1:5);
Fat = Fat(1:5);
Name = Name(1:5);

cereal = table(Calories,Protein,Fat,'RowNames',Name)
cereal=5×3 table
                                 Calories    Protein    Fat
                                 ________    _______    ___

    100% Bran                       70          4        1

Convert the table to a dataset array.

ds = table2dataset(cereal)
ds = 
                                 Calories    Protein    Fat
    100% Bran                     70         4          1
