List of Low-Carbohydrate Cereals
Many companies make low-carb cereals.

Cereal is a quick and easy meal for breakfast. There's no cooking involved -- just grab a bowl and some milk and you are ready to go. But, if you are on a low-carbohydrate diet, it may not be that simple. Most cereals are not low in carbohydrates. In fact, the main ingredient in most cereals is some kind of grain and sugar, which increases the carb count. In response to the need for a low-carb cereal, many companies have released delicious cereals that still spare the carbs.
