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 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.
Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp Cereal
220 calories, 5g fiber, 6g protein, 6g sugar
Surprise, surprise: Number Two on our list of healthiest cereals is gluten free. But that's not why we love this all-organic, non-gmo blend. This Erewhon favorite has great nutrition thanks to two super-grains most of us don't eat: whole buckwheat groats and hemp seeds. Both give your body a break from the overabundance of wheat, while a short ingredient list with maple syrup adds natural sweetness.
