10 Best New Healthy Breakfast Cereals

Looking for a healthy way to start your day? Give these healthy -- and tasty-- new breakfast cereals a try.

10 Best New Healthy Breakfast Cereals continued...

A 1.1 oz (2/3 cup) serving has 100 calories, 2 g protein, 26 g carbohydrate (6 g sugar), 1 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 6 g fiber, 150 mg sodium. Calories from sugar: 24%.

9. Heart Healthy Whole Grain Cranberry Instant Oatmeal (Trader Joe’s)

This instant oatmeal is not only unusual because it features dried cranberries, but also because it contains ground flaxseed (although the package doesn’t say how many grams of omega-3s are in each serving) and healthy plant sterol esters (adding .65 grams of plant sterol esters per serving). The third ingredient listed on the label, inulin, is a good-for-you soluble fiber.

One packet has 160 calories, 4 g protein, 30 g carbohydrate (10 g sugar), 2.5 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 6 g fiber, 90 mg sodium. Calories from sugar: 25%.

10. Kashi Go Lean Honey & Cinnamon Instant Hot Cereal

Unlike oatmeal, this instant hot cereal has a variety of taste and textures. It’s only slightly sweet, so you may want to add some fresh, frozen, or dried fruit for some added flavor.

One packet has 150 calories, 8 g protein, 26 g carbohydrate (7 g sugar), 2 g fat, 0 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 5 g fiber, 100 mg sodium. Calories from sugar: 19%.
