4. Kashi Summer Berry Granola
This relatively new granola has a unique berry flavor, with strawberries,
blackberries, and kiwi in almost every bite. Each serving contributes .35 grams
of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, mainly coming from canola oil.
A 1.9 oz (1/2 cup) serving has 220 calories, 6 g protein, 39 g carbohydrate
(9 g sugar), 6 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 7 g fiber, 150 mg
sodium. Calories from sugar: 16%.
5. Shredded Wheat Vanilla Almond, Spoon Size
Ground vanilla beans give a pleasant vanilla flavor to this cereal, which is
fortified with a variety of vitamins and minerals (iron, thiamin, riboflavin,
niacin, vitamin B6, folic acid, vitamin B12, and zinc.) Although sugar is the
second ingredient listed on the label, the calories from sugar total a
respectable 23%. Almonds, which sit on top of the bite-size biscuits, are
listed as the third ingredient on the label.
A 1.8 oz (1 cup) serving has 190 calories, 4 g protein, 43 g carbohydrate
(11 g sugar), 1.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 5 g fiber, 45 mg

6. Kashi Go Lean Crisp! Toasted Berry Crumble
This new Kashi cereal with cranberries and wild blueberries is higher in
protein and lower in carbohydrate than most breakfast cereals. The flavors and
textures combine nicely in a crunchy cereal that goes well with milk or as a
topping for yogurt.
A 1.8 oz (3/4 cup) serving has 190 calories, 9 g protein, 35 g carbohydrate
(12 g sugar), 4 g fat, .5 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 8 g fiber, 130 mg
sodium. Calories from sugar: 25%.
7. Banana Nut Bear Naked 100% Pure & Natural Cereal
If you're a fan of bananas, you'll probably love this new cereal. The 2.5
grams of saturated fat, which comes from the coconut oil used to make the
banana chips, may sound a bit high. But when you have the cereal with some skim
milk, your breakfast will contain less than 9% calories from saturated fat.
Without the milk, it contains 10% calories from saturated fat.
A 2 oz (3/4 cup) serving has 220 calories, 5 g protein, 43 g carbohydrate
(13 g sugar), 5 g fat, 2.5 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 7 g fiber, 210 mg
sodium. Calories from sugar: 24%.
8. Cinnamon Puffins (Barbara’s Bakery)
Technically, this isn’t a new cereal -- but you may not have tried it yet,
as this brand is most often found at alternative markets, such as Trader Joe’s.
Ground cinnamon dusts both sides of the cereal pillows, which are wheat-free
and made mainly of corn meal, corn bran, and oat flour. Unsulphured molasses is
the main sweetener.
