Cereals are most commonly made from wheat, corn, rice, oats, and barley. In their natural form, cereals can provide a rich source of vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Unfortunately, when refined, most cereals lack the essential nutrients and contain a high amount of unnecessary salt, sugar and fat. When choosing breakfast cereals, be careful to read the label. Look for 100% Whole Grain or 100% Whole Wheat as the first ingredient listed with as little total ingredients as possible.
