Cereal and cereal bars
are a good source of fiber, grain and energy
for breakfast. Some cereals provide fruit and nuts in the mixture, which adds servings of other food group. Take care not to choose high-sugar, refined cereals; these tend to have higher calories and cause a sugar crash, resulting in mid-day fatigue. Cereal bars that contain oatmeal, bran and fruit offer sensible options on the go. Grab a piece of fruit such as an apple, orange or banana to pair with the cereal.
