Cereals that do not contain wheat or sugar

Updated July 18, 2017

Eating a healthy breakfast is one of the best ways to start your day. However, most breakfast cereals contain sugar and processed wheat. Trying to find a sugar-free and wheat-free cereal might seem impossible amongst all the sugary cereals lining the shelves, but knowing what to look for can reveal some delicious -- and healthy -- cereal options.

Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice cereal

For a sugar-free version of Rice Krispies, try Erewhon's Crispy Brown Rice cereal. Sweetened with brown rice syrup, this light and crispy cereal is a healthy wheat-free, sugar-free breakfast option. The only ingredients are brown rice, brown rice syrup and sea salt. Enjoy this cereal with some cold milk, or use it in healthy homemade muesli bars.

Erewhon Corn Flakes

Erewhon's Cornflakes cereal is another great wheat-free and sugar-free cereal option. Because corn is naturally sweet, this cereal has no added sweeteners. It contains only organic milled corn and sea salt. Sprinkle sugar-free raisins on top of a bowl of this cereal for a healthy version of Raisin Bran, or serve with plain yoghurt and fruit for added protein.

Arrowhead Puffed Rice cereal

If you're looking for a sugar and wheat-free cereal that is also low-calorie and not very sweet, try Arrowhead's Puffed Rice cereal. Made of only puffed whole grain brown rice, this cereal is an excellent choice if you'd like a cereal with no added or natural sweetness. Adding sliced banana or fresh berries to a bowl of this cereal will add flavour and nutrients.

Nature's Path Organic Corn Puffs

If you're looking for a puffy, crispy corn-based cereal, try Nature's Path organic Corn Puffs. While they resemble Kix in texture and taste, they have no wheat or added sugar. Corn is the only ingredient in this cereal. It is low in carbohydrates and is fat-free. Eaten with milk and fresh fruit, this is a healthy breakfast cereal kids and adults can enjoy.
