On a recent trip to Walmart, I picked up some Post Cereal favorites like Shredded Wheat, Honey bunches of Oats and Grape Nuts. We love our Grape Nuts because I often make Grape Nuts Pudding which is a custard-like New England favorite.
Did you know that Grape Nuts have been around for over 100 years and have 7 grams of fiber, and contains 52 grams of whole grain?
My kids also love the flavor and crunch of Honey Bunches of Oats, and I love the Shredded Wheat. There are four different types of grains in its 10 grams per serving: rice, wheat, oats, and corn. It’s also incredibly heart healthy with 0 grams of trans fat, saturated fat, and 0 milligrams of cholesterol per serving.
Growing up, I was never a fan of mega sweet cereals so the above Post Cereal varieties are perfect because they are not overly sugary tasting and go great with any variety of milk.
Post Cereals contain fiber that prepares your body for the day and keeps you full until lunch.
Plus, they have whole grains that are packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins, and antioxidants.
Shredded Wheat is even packed with 49 grams of whole grain and 6 grams of fiber and it is even recommended by 9 out of 10 doctors to reduce heart diseases. That is ideal for our family since my dad died an early death due to heart disease complications.
