Calories in Cheerios With Milk

Eating breakfast helps you control your weight, gives you energy and helps you concentrate. A whole-grain cereal, such as Cheerios, served with milk can be part of a nutritious breakfast, especially if you also eat a serving of fruit. The calories and nutrients in your breakfast will depend on the type of Cheerios and the type of milk you choose.

Calorie Comparisons

A 1-cup serving of regular Cheerios or Multi-Grain Cheerios contains 106 calories, and a 3/4-cup serving of Honey-Nut Cheerios contains 105 calories. The regular Cheerios is a more nutritious option, however, since it only has 1.2 grams of sugar per serving compared to 6.1 grams in Multi-Grain Cheerios and 9.3 grams in Honey-Nut Cheerios. Adding a cup of skim milk increases the calories in your breakfast by 83, for a total of about 189 calories. Each cup of 2 percent milk has 122 calories, or 228 when paired with the Cheerios, and each cup of whole milk adds 149 calories, for a total of about 255 calories.
