“These [healthy] cereals are all a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre and B-vitamins — and are lower in both sodium and added sugar with very little unhealthy fat. They are not overly heavy in calories and will provide nutritious energy to kick-start your day,” says dietician Celeste Naudé.
Most of these healthy cereals are vegan and can be served with milk, nut milk, yoghurt for extra protein and calcium, or simply serve the oat-based cereals with water.
