I eat a bowl of cereal every single morning, and if I miss a morning, I’m out of whack all day. But I don’t eat junk food cereal, I eat a cereal that’s going to give me fiber, energy, and not be high in sugar or contain trans fats. It’s not easy to find a good, nutritious breakfast cereal, though, which is why I’ve done some digging, and made this list of 8 healthy breakfast cereals… and they’re all delicious, too!

Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats
Sugar: 12g, Fiber: 6g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
This is easily one of my very favorite healthy breakfast cereals. It’s sweet enough to satisfy my sugar cravings, but it’s loaded with all kinds of good stuff, like whole wheat. And the serving size is generous, so I feel fuller, longer.

If you’re looking for an alternative to instant oatmeals that are loaded with artificial flavors and far too much sugar, this organic offering is a fantastic alternative! It’s delicious, with just enough sugar to make it sweet. It’s very filling and satisfying, too, so you’ll be full til lunch!
Kashi Heart to Heart Oat Flakes and Wild Blueberry Clusters
Sugar: 12g, Fiber: 4g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
Kashi’s Heart to Heart line of cereals focuses on heart health, which makes this cereal very healthy! It’s also delicious, with antioxidant-rich blueberries for sweetness and oat flakes for a satisfying crunch.
Post Vanilla Almond Shredded Wheat
Sugar: 11g, Fiber: 5g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
The first word that comes to mind when I think of this cereal is … rich. The combination of the vanilla with the almond makes it something of a sweet treat, but it’s a far healthier breakfast cereal than you’d think…
Kashi GoLean Crunch!
Sugar: 13g, Fiber: 8g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
A handful of granola make s a great snack… or you can add it to low-fat yogurt for extra crunch and texture… or eat this honey-sweetened granola as your healthy breakfast cereal! It’s simple and flavorful, with cinnamon, honey, and Kashi’s seven whole grains and sesame… yum!
Barbara’s Bakery Peanut Butter Puffins
Sugar: 6g, Fiber: <2g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
My kids love anything with peanut butter in it, and to be honest, so do I! But most cereals that contain peanut butter are also loaded with fat and sugar, along with all kinds of nasty artificial ingredients… but not this one! It’s delicious, crunchy, and low in sugar, and all-natural… perfect!
Barbara’s Bakery Crunchy Cocoa Wild Puffs
Sugar: 7g, Fiber: <3g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
For years, I searched for a delicious, healthy breakfast cereal with chocolate, for those mornings (and evenings!) when I craved a cocoa flavor. I finally found one I love that’s low in sugar and all-natural! My kids love it, too…
Health Valley Real Oat Bran Almond Crunch
Sugar: 9g, Fiber: 5g, Trans Fat: 0g per serving
Finally, this tasty cereal is another one that will keep you filling full until it’s time for lunch. It’s crunchy with just a touch of sweetness, and I love the crunch and texture from the almonds! If you’re looking for a little variety, there’s also a cranberry version…
See? It’s completely possible to find a breakfast cereal that’s healthy, and that tastes good! I’m totally hooked on the Barbara’s Bakery cereals… they’re just so good! Which of these healthy breakfast cereals do you like best? Or is there another one you can tell me about? Please let me know!
