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.
Kashi Heart to Heart Honey Toasted Oat Cereal
160 calories, 7g fiber, 5g protein, 7g sugar
Move over Honey Nut Cheerios: This O-shaped favorite has significantly more fiber and protein, and less sugar than its General Mills competitor. Even better, while the fiber found in most cereal is insoluble fiber, which helps to keep you regular, Kashi's Heart to Heart has an impressive 2 grams of soluble fiber per cup, more than most cereals, to help keep you feeling fuller longer. *
