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.

Score one for this supermarket staple: It's low in calories, high in protein and fiber (unlike other varieties in the Chex line), and made from 100 percent whole-grain wheat. Sugar is the second ingredient on the list, but we're willing to overlook that minor drawback since the overall sugar count is still low.
