Breakfast-cereals-hero

Stumped by the hype in the cereals aisle? We checked out 137 breakfast cereals and found 46 to recommend.

We were looking for cereals that contribute to your daily fibre intake and are low in total fat, saturated fat, sugar and sodium. Many of the cereals in our survey provide an excellent start to the day, especially if you eat them with fruit and low-fat milk.
