In the past I tried the Magic Spoon high protein cereal line, thinking that even if I didn't eat it for breakfast, it would make a good snack. Unfortunately it has two strikes against it: it is VERY expensive, and IMHO, it has a weird aftertaste. Other than that, it's dandy!

Shredded wheat is probably the so-called "healthiest," because that's all it is. However, I also like Cheerios, Life, Chex, Corn Flakes, Rice Crispies, Raisin Bran, and Kix (all generic versions). I cracked a molar on Grape Nuts (the generic was "Nutty Nuggets"; I used to add it to my yogurt), so that's out now. Personally, I don't worry about eating a little sugar, so occasionally I'll treat myself to a box of Cap'n Crunch when it goes on sale (I recently bought one for 99 cents). Happy memories from childhood! Just brush your teeth afterwards. Oh, and Special K, but there's no generic, and it almost never goes on sale. It also seems very puffed full of air and insubstantial, but it's tasty. Whole milk!

We often have Fiber One and add blueberries, walnuts, ground flax, chia seeds and sunflower seeds. Top with almond milk, a bit of maple syrup...lots of nutrients, protein and fiber for the win!

Plain All-Bran flakes, sometimes mixed with Cheerios, then add walnuts or pecans and blueberries and a dash of sugar or a little honey. Every other day or so.

I've never even seen All-Bran Flakes. Wonder if that's regional.

Musli is one of the health-food varieties. I've heard Kashi is popular, too. Well, and then there are various varieties of granola. Or doesn't that count as "healthy-ish cold cereal"?

What was that cold cereal that was bran flakes with maple flavoring? I'm sure it contained some sugar, but it was yummy!

A lot of calories too. Fine if you're active, but if you're trying to lose weight (I'm guessing this is why the OP is asking for a `Healthy-ish` cereal)) then not so good.

Personally, I don't get the appeal of cereal anymore. I eat greek yogurt/skyr (siggis is in my fridge now, 100 calories with 19g protein for 3/4 a cup) with raspberries. If I'm feeling hungry, I add pistachios. Not sure if this counts as a cereal though.

Right, l agree.
I also noticed this brand in our Texas grocery stores. There is no added sugar and the sweetness comes from dry fruits



You can check on the nutritional facts here:
https://www.amazon.com/Seitenbacher-.../dp/B0033UMO1C

It's a very tasty cereal, in my opinion.

I also saw those brands in our local stores:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001E5DX4A...pa_mw_detail_2
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09XVHRRRJ...pa_mw_detail_3
All natural, low in sodium, no added sugars...
Note: there aren't any added synthetic vitamins, just whatever comes naturally. You can add to it a sliced banana, or berries or nuts or seeds or whatever your heart desires.
