I appreciated a few articles on this website, regarding healthy cereals and fiber:
The first article, High Fiber Cereals, mentions that "just two servings a day of whole grains were associated with a 21% decrease in the risk for diabetes".
The second article, Reading Nutrition Labels, said to look for foods (like cereal) that contain at least 20% DV (daily value) of fiber.
My question: Is there an "on the go" cereal bar that is healthy? There are finally many more choices of good tasting, high fiber, low sugar, low fat, whole grain cereals on the grocery shelves...but I am having a difficult time finding these in a portable "cereal bar" or "oatmeal bar".
There are many different types of these breakfast items, called "bars" or even "cookies" or "muffins", and they SAY they are healthy...but they're not once you read the nutrition label and ingredient list.
Has anyone found a cereal/oatmeal bar that is truly healthy?! Meaning: over 20% fiber, most ingredients are a whole grain, sugars are under 5%, and low fat?
Thanks!!! Sometimes I have to eat breakfast in the car, and I'd love to do so in a healthy way.
