Cheerios cereal has been a family favorite for over 70 years.
Made with 100 percent natural whole grain oats – the only major breakfast cereal grain proven to help lower cholesterol – Cheerios is a healthy start to the day or a perfect, crunchy snack for the entire family.
Three grams of soluble fiber daily from whole grain oat foods, like Cheerios
cereal, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Cheerios
cereal provides 1 gram of soluble fiber per serving.
The U.S. had corn flakes. It was eating its Wheaties.
But there was no oat-based, ready-to-eat cereal until 1941. That's when Cheerios
– or more accurately Cheerioats, the original name – came along.
