The Perfect Breakfast Cereal- Part 2

We are on a quest for …the perfect breakfast cereal!  Here are some things to look for on the nutrition label:

1.       Calories per 1 cup measurement ( some use ½ cup or less as their measurement.  Who eats ½ cup of cereal?)  Try to find a cereal with 150 calories or fewer per cereal.  This will not end up being granola, which sounds healthy but is laden with calories.

2.       Look for at least 3 grams of fiber per serving

3.       Look for low sugar.  This is best when under 10 grams per serving

4.       Look for the words ’whole grain’ in the ingredients.

5.        “Organic” doesn’t always mean “healthier”.  As a group, granola is super high in calories and fat.  Be careful.  If you really love a high calorie cereal (expect crappy kids cereals like Frosted Flakes), then sprinkle it over yogurt or fresh fruit.

Be sure and check out old fashioned oatmeal, cream of wheat or Kashi hot cereals when looking at the cereal aisle.

A tip- When I pour my kids cereals I always mix some of my less sweet, high fiber cereal in with their organic squares, or Cherrios that they like.  They never even know how well their eating!
