Plain shredded wheat is good, Cheerios is good too, or Grape Nuts. You can also usually find these in bar form as well along with Special K bars.
Those are just a few.... check it out when you get there I think you will find plenty of variety to chose from.

What makes you think anything America specifically offers cereal-wise is in any way good or better for you than anywhere else?

Maybe it's just the novelty of trying something he can't get back home?

I'll second Cheerios, Shredded Wheat, and Grape Nuts as American products. I have at least one of those in my pantry at all times.
I like a simple oats and honey granola bar. But don't have those on a regular basis, would rather make a good oatmeal cookie myself.

Well, I can't comment on "the best" prune juice, since I've never done a taste comparison, but by far the most popular brand is "SunSweet".
