I think most people associate healthy cereals with Cheerios (not the honey-coated ones). It’s said to lower cholesterol because it’s made with oat fibre. Presumably, anything made with whole grains, less fat, and less sugar may potentially lower cholesterol. After taking a look at its nutritional value, these Cheerios are made out of 8% sugar for every serving (1 cup), which isn’t too bad considering there are way more sugary cereals out there.
Cheerios are plain but they soak nicely into the milk (I use skim milk). They don’t get mushy-soggy like corn flakes and has a subtle creaminess I find yummy.
The cereals I’ve reviewed thus far include Simply Food’s Corn Flakes, Cheerios, and Kellogg’s Special K Low Fat Granola. People typically look at the calories, fats, carbohydrates, sodium, and sugar content when comparing foods. Ultimately, it depends on the individual’s diet, and by diet I don’t mean losing weight, I mean a healthy way of eating. Pin-point what you need more or less of because no one knows more about your bodily insides than yourself! Unless your doctors do 😉
5% is a little and 15% is a lot according to the % Daily Value. Refer to this website for more info: http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/init/dv-vq-eng.php (Like for being Canadian?)
There are probably healthier cereals out there than the ones I am posting, but these bulk cereals are generally more affordable and aren’t loaded with sugars. Organic and natural products are a bit on the expensive side. Nonetheless, I’ll try my best to see what’s amazing and worth that extra penny.
Have a wonderful day!
