Everyone knows it’s important to start your day with a healthy breakfast, but that doesn’t mean it always happens. Often, it’s little more than coffee or you wind up grabbing a calorie-packed pastry. Even with breakfast cereal, it’s easy to end up with something that’s mostly sugar and simple carbs, which will leave your stomach growling in no time.

When choosing a breakfast cereal, you’ll always want to go with an option that’s balanced with a good amount of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber, without too much saturated fat or sugar. If cereal is your go-to meal in the morning, these are 15 of the healthiest options you can eat.

While it does have 7 grams of sugar, it contains 5 grams less than a serving of Frosted Mini-Wheats. The carbohydrates are relatively high (like with most cereals), but this option boasts 6 grams of fiber and 7 grams of protein per serving. This minimally processed cereal will give you energy to start your day and keep you full for much longer than the average bowl.
