Better Breakfasts

If you’re looking to maintain a healthy weight, rather than skipping the morning meal, studies show it’s better to eat a low-fat breakfast that emphasizes whole grains and fiber.

  • Consider these choices and make it a habit to get your day off to a heart-healthy start.
     
  • Enjoy hot or cold cereal with a fiber content of 5 grams or more and a fat content of 0 to 3 grams.
     
  • Top your cereal with fruits, such as bananas, raisins, blueberries, or raspberries.
     
  • Make a nontraditional breakfast of vegetables tucked inside whole-grain bread.
