“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”
Most of us would be familiar with this phrase and the truth is – is it important because it kick-starts your metabolism for the day. And if you don’t have your breakfast, you are losing a lot of nutrients that can affect your body in the long run.
Here are some nutrients that your body should have. They would be carbohydrate, dietary fiber and proteins. And that is what we will be looking for in each cereal.
For those who wants to start their day on a healthy note, we will be analysing 5 plain cereal brands (anything that is non-chocolate) that is the best for you and your body.
Note that all analysis are based on per 100g.
- Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
Price: $ 3.55 – 275g
Dietary fiber: 3g
This is your plain, basic and healthy cereals that can be eaten best with anything and still tastes delicious. With high carbohydrate and protein value along with its price, it’s definitely worth your tummy.
But if eaten just like that, it’s super plain. Nevertheless, it’s healthy, decently priced and great nutrients to keep your day forward, we will give this:
2. Nestle Honey Stars
Price: $4.95 – 300g
Dietary fiber: 4.6g
Even though its super sweet and some might not like it, it has the second highest nutritional values that are good for you. This cereal might be best on this list for children since the sweetness is easy for them to eat.
Nestle Honey Stars is definitely for the sweet taste with a fair nutritional value but its slightly more on the pricier side. If these few more bucks can get your kids the nutrients they need without much complain from them, Honey Stars is definitely the way to go.
3. Nestle Corn Flakes
Dietary fiber: 3.3g
Don’t be deceived by its toasted and golden flakes, it doesn’t taste as crispy as the Kellogg’s ones. It tastes weirdly plain too.
Even though its made with whole grain and has the good amount of nutrients for your body, the taste just turns you off. No doubt it’s the cheapest cereal amongst the rest, so if you want to save up abit you can get them. But its a no for us just purely base off the taste.
4. Kellogg’s Frosties
Price: $4.95 – 300g
Dietary fiber: 0.6g
Kellogg’s Frosties isn’t the one if you’re looking for a healthy cereal. It’s cereals are sweet and crunchy with an even coat of sugar. Don’t leave it in milk for too long as it gets soggy really quick.
Its nutritional values are pretty low and for the price, it’s quite a waste for something that isn’t that healthy. But if you want to go for the sugary ness of it then this is the one. This is a breakfast cereal for people who want to have a great time eating it without the care of nutrients. Thats why we ranked it #4. They will get a
5. Cheerios General Mills
Price: $10.50 – 340g
Dietary fiber: 2g
One of the most tasteless cereals out there. It’s contradicting. It’s expensive and has the lowest nutritional values that your body needs. The price could be because it’s gluten free but still, it doesn’t provide your body with anything.
How can the cereal be so expensive but not provide you the nutrients you need. Some might not like the dusty feeling of the cereal. We really do not like this one.
According to the nutritional facts of each cereals and the price, here’s our ranking:
#1 Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
#2 Nestle Honey Stars
#3 Nestle Corn Flakes
#4 Kellogg’s Frosties
#5 Cheerios General Mills
