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.
Cascadian Farm Organic Multigrain Squares
210 calories, 4g fiber, 5g protein, 7g sugar
Made from whole-grain wheat, rice, and corn, these all-organic squares are a higher-fiber, higher-protein alternative to the classic Life Cereal. Naturally sweetened with organic sugar, the taste is great, especially if you add a little cinnamon and sliced almonds.
