Here are six tips to choosing the right cereal: 1. Scan the serving size. Always check the serving size when comparing cereals. Most cereals list the serving size as 1 cup, but some manufacturers may play with this number to make the nutrition information more appealing.

2. Choose a cereal with about 100–200 calories per serving. What follows is everything you need to know to choose a healthy cereal. Pick a Whole Grain Look for a “100 percent whole-grain” claim on the box, or read the ingredients list to be sure all grains.

How to Choose a Healthy Cereal. While many store bought muffins carry a hefty amount of caloriestypically around 400 or more each, you can easily fit them into a healthy eating plan. Choose cereals with at least 3 grams of fiber per serving. Better yet, choose a minimum of 5 grams of fiber per serving.

Heavy-hitters consist of Kellogg’s All-Bran cereals, General Mills Fiber One, Kashi GoLean, and Uncle Sam Original Wheat Berry Flakes. Tip: Go simple with bran cereals if you don’t typically eat them. Choose the cereal that’s made wholly (or almost entirely) of whole grains. By making this choice, it means that you’re looking for the cereal made of whole grain or bran. When the nutrition labels give you a hundred percent whole grain, it makes for a healthy cereal that can keep you full.

Pick up that box immediately. Some granolas provide healthy doses of protein and fiber, which can help keep you fuller longer. But you want these nutrients to come from the grains, nuts and seeds in the cereal.

In general, you can tell a healthier cereal by a short ingredient list, low sugar content, and high fiber content, says Champion. Look for whole grains or oats, vitamins, and minerals, as well. “Read the ingredient list first!” she says. “In general when choosing cereals, I always look at the protein and fiber content more than anything,” says Valdez. “These are the components that will help you stay fuller for longer. If you have a low-calorie breakfast, you will likely have cravings later and are.

Sometimes it’s easy for shoppers—like my mom—to get bogged down in the learning curve necessary to adjust to a healthier, more educated, purchasing pattern. So I was excited to find this organic cereal scorecard from the Cornucopia Institute. Choosing Store-Bought Cereals. Rather than being swayed by bright colors and health claims on the packaging, go straight to the nutritional facts and ingredient list when you’re choosing store-bought cereal.

Choose whole grains to get the nutrients your body needs rather than refined grains that often lack fiber.

  • Thank you Bobby for all these videos. I’m trying to be mindful and more knowledgeable about the things I eat. I love your channel. I already referred your Channel to my co-workers and they love it. We have our little group at work and discuss the foods we eat….��

  • Great Granola and Oatmeal Video. Do you have a video on Bobby’s best protein and/or energy bar. Would love to see one. The videos on sugar substitutes and coffee mate substitutes were also extremely informative. I’ve learned a great deal today watching several of your video. One good outcome of quarantine.

  • Rose beautiful! Adorable baby! ������������ Great video, I can’t eat any kind of oats anymore, something in them that makes me bloated and sick feeling, even the sprouted and soaking them overnight.

  • Brother let me add-on one thing for your knowledge “fibres” and “protein” are not different, However proteins are building blocks of fibre…

  • Health sutra products now are way too costly, Rs. 300/for 425 grams of ragi oats….please suggest some cheaper alternatives..!!

    Even Go-Bharti is out of stock in amazon..from a long time now..!!

  • After watching lots of videos on such issues i just came to understand that traditional way is best which nowadays used by most of these dadi used to make sattu for me when i was young but i hardly liked that but now as i grown i came to know the real importance of such things..But now no dadi and no such nutrition ����

  • I’m a sucker when it comes to cereal so of course, I usually eat it for breakfast. I eat shredded wheats (the red box) and there’s no added sugar, or sodium! It tastes delicious with almond milk because in my opinion almond milk is sweeter, so there’s no need for frosting! Gotta love cereal 😉

  • I like waffles in the morning they seem to be easy on my stomach I put fruit on top of it and waffles don’t have all that singer ok it like cereal I buy the multi grain waffles the big shot critics out said waffles are not good for you and if you think there way you will start to believe it that’s what you have to be careful surfing the internet folks

  • Hi Vivek! I like watching your videos and your honest opinions on various products. Could you please let me know if this breakfast cereal named “Pristine Organics Beginnings Organic Millet Muesli” falls under the best category and is totally safe to consume?

  • Thank you so much for d vedio. I just now returned the cereal packet which i used to eat from my childhood. Its like a eyeopener. Doin a good job for d future generation. And your telugu speaking is very cute��

  • Total moron radical for sure plenty of them around just eat what you like folks don’t listen these idiots they will drive you crazy for sure

  • Are Coach’s Oats 100% Whole Grain Oatmeal considered steal cut oats? It says on the bag cracked and toasted and the Ingredients are Whole Grain Oats

  • Great idea you should make your own products! Please keep us in mind when it comes to Pricing! Best of luck you definitely got My support!!

  • Hi vicky can u make videos on vegetarians which r safe to have on chocolate, crisps, any drinks, ready meals,butter, all yogurts, breads we dont know the whole ingredients whats in them.if u have anything plz bring that up too plz. thank u!!!

  • News flash: Cauliflowers are not oats. They are nothing but what they are, they should really stop trying to make cauliflower into everything.

  • It’s better if we could make our own museli by adding all the cerel flakes, fruits and nuts as per our choice. I don’t know how far I can trust honey as well. So I am truly going for jaggery.

  • Stumbled across Pure Elizabeth a few years ago kept buying a LOT every time. Now I have become more aware of what I eat, thought I’d check your recommendations and glad to know it’s approved by Bobby:/ Thanks a lot. and I am learning so much from you. Baked a cheesecake with monk fruit sweetener yesterday and it turned out magnificent couldn’t have imagined in a million years! Been boiling monk fruit water to protect my vocal cord since I was young but honestly never knew it was a natural sweetener for cooking until two weeks ago! Rock and roll Bobby, wish you and your family well <3

  • You guys are doing a great service to all of us who are becoming aware. I would like to see a recipe for healthy bran muffins that taste good using good ingredients.
