What to Eat with Diabetes: Best Cold Cereals
By Jessie Shafer and Elizabeth Burt, R.D., L.D.
Looking for a better breakfast cereal? Try one of our 18 cereal winners or finalists that are dietitian-approved and taste-tested. We conducted blind taste panels with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, and awarded the top-rated flakes, O’s, and puffed cereals our Diabetic Living What to Eat seal of approval.

Taste-Tested and Diabetes-Friendly
With options ranging from colorful sugar bombs to bland fiber buds, cold cereal choices may seem either tasty-but-bad-for-you or boring-but-healthful. We’re here to show you there’s a happy medium for your breakfast bowl!

Through a series of dietitian approvals for nutritional requirements and taste tests with more than 100 people, including people with diabetes, we narrowed 70 qualifying cereals down to six winners and 12 tasty finalists. These “best of the bowl” cereals were awarded our Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Pour one to taste how yummy healthful options can be!

Nutritional Guidelines

Every cereal tested had to meet these health requirements per serving (without milk):

— 150 calories or less

— Less than 30 percent of calories from fat

— 1 g saturated fat or less

— 0 g trans fat

— 30 g carb or less

— Less than 8 g sugars

— At least 3 g fiber
