Children's cereal reviews

We compare 41 kids' cereals in the CHOICE labs, including offerings from Kellogg's, Sanitarium, Nestlé and more.

Last updated: 4th October 2012

When it comes to kids' breakfast cereals, all are definitely not created equal. Disappointingly, many kids' cereals would have your child bouncing off the walls on a sugar high. What's perhaps more surprising is that children's cereals can tend to be quite high in salt as well.

Sugar and salt do play a vital role in the tastiness of a product, but many cereals targeted specifically at kids have more in common with treat foods than a nutritious breakfast.

Thankfully though, there are healthy alternatives – even when it comes to cereals targeted directly at children. We pull apart the most popular choices to find out if your family can get anything positive out of them.

This product comparison includes all cereals that are obviously aimed at children via ads or packaging.
