Cheerios are a popular type of breakfast cereal that is made from whole grain oats. Cheerios come in multiple flavors. The original version of Cheerios is healthy and low in sugar, but you may find that it lacks the taste that you are looking for. You can enhance the taste of plain Cheerios through multiple methods. These methods vary in their healthy qualities, but they all make plain Cheerios taste better.

Sprinkle 1 tsp. of sugar or sugar substitute over a bowl of Cheerios and milk.

Add slice bananas, strawberries or blueberries to the top of your Cheerios and milk. Adding fruit will add some calories, but you will be getting vitamins and fiber as well.

Use the Cheerios in a recipe, such as Cheerio Treats. For this recipe, melt 1/2 stick of butter in a large pot. Pour in 8 cups of Cheerios and 1 10-ounce bag of marshmallows. Stir the mixture together and spoon it into a greased 9 by 13 inch dish. Pat the mixture down into the dish. Once it cools, you can slice it into squares.

Layer plain Cheerios in a parfait glass with yogurt and fresh fruit.
