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.

This supermarket brand has surprising nutrition in every cup of crunchy clusters, flakes, and whole oats. Real whole pumpkin and sunflower seeds add a nutty, natural punch. Another bonus? This cereal bumps up its protein content with pea protein, not the more commonly found soy flour or grits.
