Breakfast Cereals – How to Choose the Best One

Cereal is the main dish for most of my breakfasts. It is quick, easy, delicious, and provides many nutrients, including fiber, if you choose the right one. Look for a cereal that contains whole grains and is high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. If possible, try to choose a variety high in protein. Since adults are supposed to be consuming at least 25 grams of fiber each day, choosing a cereal that’s high in fiber will help start your day off right. Try to get one with at least 5 grams of fiber per serving. Protein and fiber help you feel full longer so you won’t be starving by mid-morning. Top your cereal with low-fat or fat-free milk and add some fruit (strawberries, blueberries, peaches, bananas) for added flavor and nutrients.
