“These [healthy] cereals are all a great source of soluble and insoluble fibre and B-vitamins — and are lower in both sodium and added sugar with very little unhealthy fat. They are not overly heavy in calories and will provide nutritious energy to kick-start your day,” says dietician Celeste Naudé.
