Wake up and smell the plant-based breakfast cereal!

Cereal lover? You know we’ve got the details on those plant-based breakfast options! Although the cereal aisle seems to be full of an unlimited supply, not all of them are vegan. Aside from the overt non-vegan ingredients like milk, honey, and gelatin, vitamin D is a less obvious additive that may be lurking in your brekkie go-to. Vitamin D3 is often derived from lanolin, a wool byproduct, but the vegan options either utilize a vegan form of vitamin D or forgo the nutrient altogether. Now you know! So, whether you prefer fruity, kid-style cereals or plain, fiber-rich options, check out these 10 vegan breakfast cereals to start your day.

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
