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.
Quaker Oatmeal Square Cinnamon
210 calories, 5g fiber, 6g protein, 2g sugar
What we want to know is how Quaker Oats packs so much cinnamon sweetness in this pillowy cereal while still keeping its sugar count so amazingly low. Whole-wheat flour leads the ingredient list, while one cup of this square-shaped goodness gives the same protein as found in an egg.
