Among the vitamins and minerals found in Honey Nut Cheerios are sodium, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. This means that there are high quantities of essential nutrients such as niacin, manganese and riboflavin in the cereal. The cereal also contains dietary fiber, sugar and protein. These Cheerios have a very high sugar content with honey, sugar and brown sugar contributing to the sweetness.

A closer look revels that the fiber content of Honey Nut Cheerios is 3 grams per serving. This is less fiber than what is found in Fruit Loops and Apple Jacks.

The cereal contains only the flavor of natural almonds, and there are no actual nuts in the pack. However, the total sugar content is somewhat less than in other children's cereals, and the cereal contains no trans fat or artificial coloring. These are perhaps some reasons why it was recently hailed as a healthy breakfast by Mrs. Michelle Obama. Other healthy cereal options include multi-grain Cheerios and plain Cheerios, both of which have less sugar and 3 grams of fiber.
