The ingredient list is wicked short with just four, plus a few vitamins and minerals. Six grams of fibre are balanced with nine grams of sugar, so it still tastes good. A bowl of Shreddies also contains a bunch of B-vitamins and 50 percent of the daily need for iron.
Why kids will love it: It stays crunchy for awhile, so distracted diners won’t have a soppy bowl of cereal.
OATMEAL SQUARES (QUAKER)
Nutrition notes: Made with 100 percent whole grain oats, this cereal is a nice change from the usual rice and wheat. The sodium is on the high side (205 mg), but each bowl also boasts five grams of fibre, including soluble fibre. It’s also fortified with B-vitamins and iron.
Why kids will love it: It has a pleasing, sweet flavour and good crunch. It also comes in a maple syrup flavour, but that variety has a lot more sugar.
