What are some good diabetic breakfast cereals?

There are no specific “diabetic cereals.” There are cereals with fewer carbohydrates per serving, more fiber and less added sugar than others. Look for the “whole grain” label, also for the added nutritional benefits. “Good” cereals include shredded wheat, Cheerios, Wheaties, bran flakes, and kashi. One carbohydrate portion is equal to 15 grams of carbohydrate. You may subtract half of the fiber grams from the total carbohydrate if the portion has at least 5 gram of fiber.
