Breakfast Cereal Breakdown Extraordinaire

I have no fear of sounding like a broken record when it comes to promoting breakfast as the most important meal of the day. It is a fact I feel comfortable reiterating over and over again. With breakfast on my mind, I need to share an extremely thorough online breakdown of the most popular breakfast cereals in America (apologies to all you international readers) brought to you by A Calorie Counter.

If you have ever wanted to sit down and compare all the cereals you see in the grocery aisle, but just haven't been able to make the time to do it, fear not because A Calorie Counter has done it for you. He has created a breakdown of more than 50 of the best selling cereals. The best part of this chart is that you can sort it by category. So if you are looking for the cereal with the most protein or the most fiber, your answer is just a double click away. This breakdown is truly helpful!

See how your breakfast cereal compares at Breakfast Cereal Breakdown Extraordinaire!

Thanks for this post! I was just about to check this site for posts about cereal because I've been wondering about which ones were the healthiest. I was so surprised to see this! Now I just need to learn to stay away from all the chocolate-flavored ones that I love!

I love Special K with Red Berries!! (My husband doesn't get it...he's like "Aren't they just strawberries?" LOL). I usually eat oatmeal for breakfast though. I like the Special K sprinkled on fruit and yogurt...yum :)

blonewithbangs, this is SO true! I recently bought these small cereal bowls for just this reason. They are plastic and have a line on the inside that is where a cup is so you always know you've got the right amount. They were a Target special, I got like 6 for $1 or something like that. I wish I had bought more, because I use them for everything now.

Totally sticking to my Special K Red Berries. Since I've said it before too...I hardly ever get breakfast in though. I mostly eat it as a snack, or part of my lunch with my Soy Milk.
