When choosing a healthy cereal, be sure to look for whole grain cereal that is made from all three parts of the wheat kernel (bran, germ and endosperm) which contain all the precious vitamins, minerals, fiber and disease-fighting properties.

If the label doesn’t say “100% whole grain,” check the ingredient list. If. Cereal is supposed to be a safe space.

Pour out your favorite cereal with your preferred milk, and you know what you’re getting, right? Wrong, apparently. According to a recent BuzzFeed News report, various disturbing cases of random objects being found in cereal have been reported, and they’re definitely not little nuggets of sugar or an old-fashioned prize.

  • We can eat most boxed cereal. No colors, no soy, no dairy, no gluten, low sugar, no high fructose corn syrup (diabetes & food sensitivities) thank God for Aldi’s! I basically make everything from scratch. Good thing I love cooking! Lol!

  • I love cereals but had to give up coz of the high sugar content. I love UK’s Dorset cereal coz it has cleaner ingredients and shorter ingredients list ��

  • Cereal is my go to dessert i know what im getting myself into when i serve that can crunch but i want to be disciplined for the next 30 days

  • Sorry, you didn’t even glance at Uncle Sam cereal.
    Uncle Sam is the most nutritious and delicious cereal on the market.
    I had to dislike out of principle

  • Hey can you show us visual comparisons with the grams and cups serving sizes �� Does that mean I should go for lower gram cereal??

  • I eat Special K Red Berries everyday. I am allergic to all nuts and most cereals I cannot eat due to my allergy. Special K has been the only on the healthier side cereal that I can eat without worrying about the label “May contain peanuts, tree nuts, etc”. Unless you find one that is better and no nuts, I will stick with my special K. Seems to keep me full and I eat at 7 AM and I don’t eat lunch until 12-12:30 PM.

  • Hi Bobby! Your videos have been very helpful in my transition to a keto diet. Do you have any insight on “Magic Spoon” cereal? I’m seeing some suspicious ingredients but not sure if it is detrimental. I have tasted them before, and they are delicious. Thanks in advance!

  • My favs are Fruity Pebbles and Cinnamon Toast Crunch! During Halloween l also love Frankenberry��
    It’s been forever since I’ve eaten any of those. I usually eat oatmeal or drink a smoothie.

  • My prayer before watching this video��������������������Please Lort, please let this nice lady say Honey Nut Cheerios is good for us��������

  • Chicory root is popular for its coffee-like flavor. It’s also a great source of prebiotics.
    Approximately 47% of chicory root fiber comes from the prebiotic fiber inulin.
    The inulin in chicory root nourishes the gut bacteria, improves digestion and helps relieve constipation (3, 4).
    It can also help increase bile production, which improves fat digestion (5).
    Additionally, chicory root is high in antioxidant compounds that protect the liver from oxidative damage (6).

    BOTTOM LINE:Chicory root is often used as a caffeine-free replacement for coffee. Its inulin fiber promotes gut bacteria, reduces constipation and helps break down fat.

  • I don’t even eat cereal so the grape nuts might be a good option lol but I won’t go out of my way because I avoid carbs like this virus ������

  • Hello Bobby!!! I love your videos.
    What are your thoughts about this cereal
    Fruitful Os cereal from Cascadian Farm
    Organic. Thank you!!!

  • Isn’t it safe to say that most of the protein in these cereals is just gluten anyway? If so, high protein in a cereal might not be such a good thing.

  • For sweetness I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Apple Jacks, and for a healthier choice it’s Special K Original, Kix, and Corn / Rice Chex. Glad Kix was mentioned, I’ll have to eat it more!

  • I am so surprised that with your gourmet taste buds, that you like Starbucks!! I think their coffee tastes burnt and I’ve given it a try 6 X’s…..

  • Nice review but you didn’t mention the calories per serving. That’s something I look for on cereals not just the sugar content. Also these healthy brands aren’t available at the grocery stores in my country. There are some gourmet stores that might have them but the prices are extremely high. Most can’t afford it so they settle for the basic corn flakes.

  • I watched this video specifically to get your opinion on LIFE cereal. And although you picture the cereal front and center, you never mentioned it.

  • I, am 100% sure The Oscar is the strongest hero/villain on every movie, anime, video games, and etc. Because he possesses every single one of their powers. But why isn’t Darkseid, Anti monitor, and Galactus, etc. Isn’t in the video?

  • How about instant oatmeal (Better Oats) Steel cut? 0 sugar.
    My choices
    1. Shredded Wheat (large biscuits) No sugar, high fiber (BHT is only questionable )
    2. Great Value Bran flakes

  • I love Wheaties and it’s kind of marketed as a healthy cereal and such. I’ve never done the research but probably should! Anybody have any advice on the nutritional content of Wheaties?

  • The best Breakfast Cereal I have ever had was a rare limited edition Robots Cereal made for the robots movie it was sooooooooooooo goooooooooood like if you ever had it you will never have another Cereal that taste the same sadly it was only made for limited time.

  • They ain’t gonna use REAL Cinnamon as TRUE Cinnamon is expensive—also known as Ceylon Cinnamon. They gonna use some chemical cocktail or the cheap fake cinnamon called Cassia, which is poison in large quantities or if you consume regularly.

  • Thanos (Avengers: Infinity War & Endgame) Has Infinity Glove �� ♾ Colors 8:56
    Oscar: The Golden Man �� Crush 9:38 & Chews 9:41 Or Sallowed
    He Brought Infinite ♾ Glove 27:01 And He Snap His Fingers Turn
    27:04 Heroes ��‍♂️ & Villains ��‍♂️ Into a Dust.

  • I don’t understand why they don’t get rid of all these Products with these bad ingredients. Sell only those healthier brands at reasonable Prices. Why are they even legally allowed to use those ingredients?

  • Was watching several videos and in one there was an App mentioned that would help with choosing products in relation to the ingredients. It would help with what to look for AND what to avoid. What is the App

  • Some of these cereals you might as well be giving your kid candy for breakfast. The first time I tried Peanut Butter Crunch was in college at 2 AM after hours of pot smoking.

  • Damn, no wonder people get brainwashed by people. This guy gives you a real secured confidence in the right foods. The way he presents himself is perfect. Whether he truly knows this stuff down to a science is a whole new question but no question about it that he makes you feel good about what you should be buying. Imagine: This must of been what those females felt like rolling with Charles Manson and now are trying to get out of prison. Brain washed I’d say.

  • I’m curious why you are pushing Walmart so often when they are such horrible corporate citizens they pay their employees so little that they qualify for public health benefits on purpose, and so much more, I urge everyone to watch the high cost of low prices by Michael Moore before shopping there, I have, and will never step foot in there, ever, unless I become destitute, knockin’ wood

  • I love my Cheerios, frosted mini wheats, and Raisin Bran crunch lol. Sometimes dry cereal is all my stomach lets me eat on a bad day

  • Sometimes I feel like I just need the small “approved” subscription to Bobby’s foods. Seems like 99% of stuff at the stores is garbage in his opinion.

  • Would love an update to this video.

    What are your thoughts on Bran Flakes, Corn Flakes, Weetabix, Grape Nuts, and Shredded Wheat? Those are my go-tos.

  • thank you for this video I have a question if I eat a whopper meal can I cut the whopper in half and divide the fried in half and only eat half of the meal and have the other meal for the next day or  should I go for a kids meal or a whopper junior I just what to know cause I like to eat a BBk some time thamk you for god bless

  • if you’re training at an intense level 3-5x a week, you can afford to have your favorite sugary cereals, no problem. it is about the carbs these cereals offer, as well as the vitamins and minerals being that they are focused for children. to say that these cereals offer inadequate nutrition/fuel is simply nonsense. on training days where I have an intense 1hr+ cycling session, I consume more than 300g of carbs that day. more than half of those come from sugary cereal and cookies/ice cream.

  • 8:56 I’m gonna kill you with all the colours of the rainbow except indigo 9:12 Oh no ohh this thing is heavy! 9:35 That infinity backfired! 14:37 Captain! Yes!? 20:20 Don’t engage!

  • those cereal boxes are very small but very expensive. I wouldn’t spend the money on cereals. Meats, butter, milk… I’d pay for grass fed/organic

  • Go lean (not Go lean crunch), Power O’s, Heart to Heart’s, and regular Cheerios are the best ones for you. They aren’t bad whatsoever. And you can still eat those sugary cereals like CTC and Fruity Pebbles in moderation like pretty much any junk food.

  • Waffle Crisp is my favorite!
    I was sad to see it disappear:\
    Hope they bring it back someday like they did with French Toast Crunch.

  • It was so heart breaking when he said he thought he was a hero when he did all of those it was so sad “I thought i was a hero” T-T T-T

  • The sugar is Nothing more than the “Fuel” for the cancer. The wheat is non organic & loaded full of pesticides including roundup from GMO Monsanto seeds sold to & grown by farmers beware you are currently being poisoned by purchasing these products which other countries have banned!

  • Talk to me Bobby!!! Thank you so much. so much info. i am watching all your videos.. I have been eating Honey bunches of oats. i love it so much.. Special K as well..Looking for another cereal. Trying to lose the sugar from my diet..

  • Is that 9 grams of sugar per serving or box? Also how is a sausage biscuit healthy? And how is wheat which has a high glycemic ratio healthy for you? I think that’s old school thinking? Raisen bran when I have it occasionally keeps me regular! And you didn’t talk about Cheerios?
