Hi, I'm Colleen from the Better Homes and Gardens Test Kitchen staff. For seven-grain cereal, look for a dry hot cereal mix (Bob's Red Mill or Arrowhead Mills) that contains wheat, oats, barley, soybeans, buckwheat, corn, and millet. It's usually found with the other hot cereal mixes or in the health sections of larger stores.
