Which cereals have least sugar? Your guide to a healthier breakfast without paying a fortune

It can be hard to balance getting nutritious foods that make you feel good without spending a lot.

In this series, we try to find the healthiest options in the supermarket for the best value – and have enlisted the help of Sunna Van Kampen, founder of Tonic Healthwho went viral on social media for reviewing food in the search of healthier choices.

The series does not aim to identify the outright healthiest option, but to help you get better nutritional value for as little money as possible.

“The key to healthier cereal bowls is to ensure minimal sugar and maximum fibre – which is where options like Weetabix come to the forefront as a better option – at 4.2% sugar and 10% fibre,” Sunna says. 

Among the main brands, this is hard to beat.

Frosties and Crunchy Nut don’t fare well at 35% and 37% sugar respectively. Cornflakes at 8% and Coco Pops at 17% are better – but still high.
