Whole Grains for the Whole Day

Feb 09, 2015 03:39AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food




Getting enough whole grains into your family’s diet may seem like a whole lot of work, but one trick for getting more grains throughout the day is by using an ingredient family members of all ages will love – cereal.

Starting the day off right begins with eating a breakfast rich in whole grains. Cereals such as Honey Bunches of Oats Whole Grain are packed with more than two-thirds of your day's whole grain and a touch of sweetness for a deliciously wholesome breakfast.

You can also use cereal in recipes for other meals and snacks to give your family extra servings of the whole grains they need with flavors they can enjoy all day long. For example, meatballs made with crushed whole grain cereal make for a tasty dinner, and you can feel good about satisfying your sweet tooth with easy to make whole grain sweet and salty clusters.
