Cereal continues to be the breakfast of champions – if you make the right choice. While too many boxes along the cereal aisle contain excess fat, sugar, and salt, there are plenty of whole-grain options too that are low in sugar, high in fiber, and full of protein.
*All nutritional amounts based on 1-cup serving. All cereals listed feature a whole grain as the first ingredient and are ranked based on their nutrition (ideally, with more than 5 grams of fiber and protein, and fewer than 10 grams sugar), their ingredient list, and taste.
Barbara's Morning Oat Crunch
210 calories, 5g fiber, 6g protein, 12g sugar
Although these crunchy pillows of oaty goodness have 2 grams more sugar than we recommend, the cereal's sweetness comes from non-gmo cane sugar and molasses, giving it a more wholesome taste.
