The FDA mandates that, for a cereal to be healthy, the cereal would need ¾ ounces of whole grains, 1 gram of saturated fat or less, and no more than 230 milligrams of sodium and 2.5 grams of added sugar to be considered healthy.  

Here are the seven:

  • Corn Flakes (300mg of sodium; 4g of added sugars)
