Convenient and satisfying, cereal will always be a breakfast staple for most guys. But if you’re not careful, the sugary calories can add up faster than snowflakes in a blizzard. Yes, much of the mainstream cereal on the market is a lot closer to candy than a nourishing way to fuel you as you start your day. Choose wisely, though, and cereal can be nutritious enough to anchor a breakfast of champions.
“When hunting for a healthier cereal you need to look out for those that are higher in fiber and protein without a lot of added sugars or preservatives,” says Kara Landau, a New York City-based registered dietitian and founder at Uplift Food. “And definitely don’t be scared of fats if they come from good sources like nuts and seeds.”
Overwhelmed by the colossal number of choices when spinning your wheels down the cereal aisle? Grab any of these better-for-you and tasty cereals that make it much less tempting to punch the snooze button.
Our cereal buying guidelines are as follows:
• If the cereal is made from grains, it must list only whole ones—like oats or quinoa—in the ingredient list.
• No more than 10 grams of total sugar on the nutrition label.
• At least 3 grams of fiber in each advertised serving.
• Ideally, the cereal delivers at least 3 grams of protein per serving.
