I don't know how 'healthy' it is, but I eat a bowl of Berry Burst Cheerios every morning. Good stuff.

Lately I've become a Fruit Harvest kind of guy. Am burned out on Cherios, Total and Wheaties. Shredded Wheat and oatmeal just don't have enough flavor.

Nature's Path makes a great organic granola cereal called "Hemp Plus Granola"- it has Omega-3 fatty acids, it's low in sodium, has flaxseed, and bran. Seriously, it is delicious... I usually have about an ounce of it with skim milk, and I'm good to go (along with my bran bagal, though).

Huge bowl of oatmeal with, cinnamon, raisins and a chopped up banana. If I really have to sweeten it I put some honey in it. Complex carbohydrate so you don't "bonk" as easy, bonds with fat, thereby eliminating it from your body, water soluble so you feel full longer. What's not to like?

I really like Balance with Strawberries made by Malt-O-Meal. I only find it at Wal-Mart. Its one of the bagged cereals so it comes with more cereal and is cheaper than the boxed cereals.

i'm a Total fan for healthy cereal, although i've been doing more oatmeal lately with grape nuts added.
on the not so healthy side-
captain crunch w/ crunchberries-the staple
golden grahams-mmmmm
and the crack of the cereal world-
reeses peanut butter puffs. seriously, if you haven't tried em-don't.
highly highly addictive. i'll eat the whole box at once if i get some....

Oatmeal in the winter (I sometimes go beyond the plain and get Cinnamon and Raisons or another variety)

Cheerios in the summer with skim milk (I now have a hard time drinking "Regular" milk) and a little brown sugar along with a fruit (blueberries or bananas usually)

Kashi GoLean (which is absolutely awesome!), Wheaties, or Special K

Any of the above with a cut up banana and a glass of Crystal Light.
Every single morning, that's what I have.... such a creature of habit!

Sometimes we'll buy the Kellogg's variety pack. Sometimes we'll buy the General Mills variety pack:

Kellogg's Variety Pack - 2 Froot Loops, Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, Mini Wheats, Frosted Flakes, Raisin Bran, Corn Pops, Crispix, Honey Crunch Corn Flakes

General Mills Variety Pack - Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cheerios, Lucky Charms, Golden Grahams, Frosted Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, Trix

But the best is the Kellogg's Fun Pak:

2 Frosted Flakes, 2 Froot Loops, Cocoa Krispies, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, and Honey Smacks

Well, I'd be lying if I said Cocoa Pops / Cocoa Crispies / Cinnamon Toast Crunch weren't my favorite, but I haven't had those in months. I am a big fan of plain ole Special K, which I have just about every day, sometimes with a granola bar.
