Start your morning with the most important meal of the day—vegan breakfast! Cereal fans will have trouble choosing from all the vegan varieties. Add soy milk and a sliced banana, and you’re good to go. For something a little heartier, try hot cereal—many of them are vegan. Or grab a granola bar as you dash out the door.

    “Gelatin, which is used in some of our products to provide texture, is derived from either beef or pork. Products containing pork gelatin include Kellogg cereal products with marshmallow additives (i.e., Kellogg’s® Marshmallow Froot Loops cereal and Kellogg’s Smorz® cereal) and all varieties of Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats® Squares. Products containing beef gelatin include all varieties of Kellogg’s® Frosted Pop-Tarts®, Kellogg’s® Frosted Mini-Wheats® cereal, Kellogg’s® Rice Krispies Treats cereal, and the Kellogg’s® Fruit-Flavored Snacks that contain gelatin.” from this site…

  • Jessica says:

    You suggest grabbing an unfrosted Pop Tart for breakfast. Is the gelatin in Pop Tart only in the frosting and not the filling?

  • TearDropSoup says:

    I read somewhere that Raisin Bran isn’t vegan because it contains vitamin D ingredients derived from animals. I hope you’re right peta, because I love raisin bran…..

  • mel says:

    hi weetabix cereal is also vegan friendly it says so on the box i’m not entirely sure about the other products but there are a couple of ’em that are vegan as well 🙂

  • Lara says:

    Finding dairy-free or vegan cereal is so tricky. Special K Vanilla Almond no longer has whey and now claims no dairy ingredients, but it still made me ill. I’ve since learned that “natural flavoring” is vague and misleading, as it often includes dairy.

  • CJ Soulsista says:

    Warning: Nature Valley products are all GMO products. 🙁

  • Kiki says:

    Check out your local Whole Foods Market to learn tips on how to go vegan or vegetarian. There is a nutritionist at every store that can assist you if you need extra help. In the meantime, continue on this site, Oprah’s site has a nice shopping list to view for vegans, and

  • florence says:

    decided to go vegan but am finding it realy dificult . dont know what to look for on products .is there a simple book i can get to help .xx.

  • DeAnna says:

    Are all Kelloggs Special K cereals vegan friendly?

  • Kathy says:

    Hello, just wondering, does PETA consider the kinds of sweeteners in these products and/or the kind of processing they go through? As I’ve tried to become vegan, my reading suggests that white/refined sugar (which is also contained in most brown sugar)is filtered through animal bone char. I’ve read things that suggest white flour goes through a process like that too. Any thoughts on this? Thanks!

  • Ellise says:

    I just became vegan and there are tons of thing, i eat strawberry’s with sugar or vinaigrette, and apple sauce( not the most typical breakfast food) and V8 to get me going!

  • Sean says:

    I’m pretty sure that Van’s breakfast products are vegan. They make frozen waffles and stuff like that.

  • Sam says:

    There is also almond milk. It’s really good!

  • mhazuka says:

    Who knew that cocoa puffs are vegan? haha not the healthiest choice, but funny nonetheless.

  • Kim says:

    @Robert: Morning Star is vegetarian, not vegan. They use dairy in their foods.

  • Sabrina says:

    There is even hemp milk and flax milk now! both have their own nice aromas. you are not limited to soy!

  • mtfm says:

    Wiz- they have great almond and rice mild too

  • Patrice says:

    Is their another alternative for soy milk, i like soy but i upsets my stomach, is lactaid stil a dairy product? ANy alternatives? for milkl for latose intolerance folks.

  • Wiz says:

    Soy milk is not a good alternative for some, it would be good if you had other alternatives other then just cereal, like it’s the only thing you can have for breakfast.

  • Robert says:

    What about Morning Star farms? They make some great meatless products like bacon and sausages.
