Healthy Cereal For The Whole Family

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, due to our busy schedules, we tend to skip breakfast the most. An alternative to not only save time but save our bodies from developing ulcers is by having a healthy cereal. For this reason, I am recommending some cereals which I'm sure you and your family will love. Not only are these cereals loaded with vitamins and minerals they are also very tasty and enjoyable to have. If you want to know more about which cereals I am loving, read more to find out!

MADE WITH MUESLI

Recommended Cereal: Tesco Fruit & Nut Muesli

If you're looking for a healthy breakfast that's bursting with natural flavors then this cereal is a product I highly recommend. What I like particularly about this cereal is that it has got a mix of dried fruits which consist of sultanas, raisins, coconut, sweet dried banana chips, dried apricot and sweetened dried pineapple. In addition, it also has bits of hazelnuts in the mix. Yum!

What's particularly great about including muesli in your diet is that it contains lesser sugar and calories than other cereals in the market. Since it is rich in fiber, it helps in healthily controlling the digestive system, therefore, making you fuller and assist you with weight control. Not only that, it is also a great source of antioxidants along with protein and omega-3 fatty acids. 

MADE WITH SHREDDED WHOLE WHEAT 

Recommended Cereal: Nestle Shredded Wheat Biscuits

Made with 100% whole grain wheat, this healthy cereal will surely keep you up and going, and ready to start the day! What I like most about this cereal is the texture it gives while eating it. I love how it's crunchy and melts in my mouth at the same time. I particularly like soaking mine with milk and eating it soggy. Oftentimes, I also like using chocolate milk just to add a little bit more flavor. 

The best thing that you are getting out of eating a shredded wheat cereal is its fiber-rich nutrients. Also, it is regarded as one of the most healthy choices when it comes to breakfast cereals for its nutritional value. This is because cereals made with shredded wheat cereal has low to none added sugar. Furthermore, it gives your body adequate amount of vitamins and minerals like iron, zinc, niacin, folate, and potassium. 

Other ways you can enjoy this healthy cereal is by mixing low-fat plain yogurt. You can also mix in some dried fruits or fresh berries depending on your liking. I personally like having mine with chilled mixed berry yogurt and bananas. 

MADE WITH BRAN FLAKES 

Recommended Cereal: Kellogg's All-Bran Breakfast Cereal, Complete Wheat

If you are looking for a healthy cereal that is more on the crunchy side, then this is a good pick for you! Made with whole wheat and wheat bran, this healthy cereal can feed you with up to 26% of a person's daily fiber intake. There are actually a lot of varieties of this cereal that you can choose from but I like this one the best. That is because I personally like having the liberty to add more ingredients to my breakfast cereal. 

A good reason why you should include having wheat bran in your diet is that it contributes a lot when it comes to your body systems. First is that because it is rich in fiber, it is a good diet to help you prevent developing colon and breast cancer. Another one is that it protects your heart from developing a cardiovascular disease. If you're struggling with your weight, it can also aid you to control and have a proper weight loss management. Not only that, it also contributes to having a healthy digestive system. In addition, it also protects your body against diverticular disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and constipation. Lastly, wheat bran is also known to provide emotional benefits.

MADE WITH CORN FLAKES

Recommended Cereal: Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Corn Flakes Cereal

If we're talking about corn flakes, there's no doubt it would be Kellogg's. This cereal has been a kitchen staple in our home for as long as I can remember. It is actually my dad's most favorite. What I particularly (and it is safe to say that my whole family as well) enjoy is its honey coating and those bits of nuts that you can taste while enjoying this goodie. 

This breakfast cereal is actually regarded as being the most popular one of all. Made with milled corn, it is actually perceived to facilitate effective absorption of vitamins and minerals in the body as compared to its counterparts. They are highly beneficial to our health for they are a good source of iron and essential vitamins like A, B, C, D and E. It is also known to be very rich in Thiamine. Thiamine is particularly essential for effective carbohydrate metabolism along with providing energy and supporting our cognitive function. They are protein rich and can provide protection against developing heart disease. They also contribute to lung health and aid in weight loss. 

MADE WITH GRANOLA

Recommended Cereal: Quaker Simply Granola, Oats, Honey and Almonds

Containing as much as 5 grams of protein and a very low amount of sodium, this flavorful yet healthy cereal is a sure treat to serve your family. I like the combination of oats and honey and so I am sure that if you have a sweet tooth like me but is looking for a healthy alternative then this would be your favorite go-to!

Nutrition wise, granola oats are known to provide high amounts of fiber and iron. Because this cereal also contains nuts and seeds in its ingredients, it also nourishes the body by providing unsaturated fats and proteins. Granola can improve your digestion, reduce your cholesterol levels, boost your energy levels, aid in weight loss, protect you from developing cancer, prevent you from having anemia, lower your blood pressure, support your mental health, regulate your blood sugar and support healthy skin. 

MADE WITH WHOLE GRAIN

Recommended Cereal: Reese Puffs Crunchy Peanut Butter Whole Grain Cereal

Although I love everything that I have featured in this article, this particular cereal tugs at my heart the most. I'm sure most of you already know why. It's Reese. It tastes like peanut butter and chocolate. Who can say no to that? (Okay, maybe someone can. LOL) However, not only is this cereal really tasty it also has a lot of nutritive value to it.

Because it is made with whole grain, it is loaded with nutrients such as protein, fiber, antioxidants, iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium. Having a diet such as this, it can assist you in lessening the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and some types of cancer. Also, whole grain can improve your digestion and help you maintain regular bowel movements. In addition, it is also known to benefit the body by proliferating healthy bacteria in our colon.

To wrap up this article, you may be wondering, "Will I regret buying this?" The answer to that would be no. Think about it as this, if you can spend money on things that you don't actually need then how come you're adamant on spending for your health? There is no such thing as waste when it comes to food. Particularly so if it is healthy for you. If you can enjoy it and improve your lifestyle and your wellbeing at the same time then I think it's a good investment for your health. It is the best thing you can give to yourself. 

Once again, thanks for reading my article and may your makeup always be on point! ♡
