The box of cheerios said that its made of toasted oats. Is that oats as in the same ingredient as Oat meal? Is it slow digesting carb also?

It's made from the same stuff but Cheerios will be very high on the GI scale. Cheerios oats are ground up into a powder and digested very quickly. Old fashioned oats are just cut into flakes and digest slowly. Old fashoined oats are a MUCH better choice.
