Corn flakes can be good if taken in non processed form. There are some of the brands who add the preservatives. Also the process with which it goes it makes the corn flakes not good for the longer term. You can buy the corn flakes from local brand which are not chemically processed. They can have the nutritional value. Also they can make up with better diet instead of the dalia.

In case of dalia, it is much better as it has no preservatives. But compared to the corn flakes, it has less nutritional value. So for that you have to choose which one suits your health.

There are also oats which are much better with either milk or in boiled form. In comparison to dalia and corn flakes, the oats are much better for the health too.

Comparing the the nutritional values between Dahlia and the Corn - flakes, later seems to be the most benificial if taken daily as breakfast. But since the Corn - flakes are added with the Carcegenic material in the form of preservative and as such its consistent use should be avoided. However, the indegeniously prepared cornflakes without having any addition of preservative can used as breakfast and can enjoy all the nutritional values.
In terms of healthy breakfast, Oats may also be chosen because of the same having high fibrous content and other essential nutrients. Regular use of Oats can take care of the Cholesterol - level of our metabolism.
