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.
Uncle Sam Skinner's Raisin Bran Cereal
190 calories, 6g fiber, 6g protein, 8g sugar
Good luck finding a raisin bran with less sugar per cup than a cookie (Kellogg's Raisin Bran has 18g per serving!) – which is why we love this low-sugar, high-protein score from Uncle Sam. There's no sugar- or oil-coated raisins or long list of fillers in this cereal: The satisfying flake-and-raisin mixture is made from only four non-gmo ingredients.
