Both Grape Nuts and Cheerios (and lots of other cereals) seem relatively healthy, but both offer differ different ingredients and nutrients. Your body functions best if you eat a large variety of healthy foods (especially lots of plants).

Other cereals to try are pretty much anything by Barbaras, Nature's Path, Kashi (popular, although I personally think most of it tastes like crap), Arrowhead Mills, Uncle Sam's, Ezekiel, etc. A good alternative if you have a few minutes extra time is steel cut oatmeal (I add in fresh berries, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of brown sugar).
