Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That is what “they” say. I’m not sure who “they” are but “they” are probably right. I used to skip breakfast every day and by lunch time I was starving and would eat anything I could get my hands on. But now that I have kids I make myself eat breakfast. I mean I need all the energy I can get to keep up with these guys.
I don’t often have time to cook a full breakfast but I do try to feed my family right and opt for the healthier choices. But who wants to put wheat germ on their Cheerios? I know I don’t because my mom used to make us do that every day when I was little. So I opt to feed my family General Mills Whole Grain Cereals.
The Dietary Guidelines recommend people get at least 48 grams of whole grain in their daily diets. But identifying whole grain products can be challenging. Dr. Travis Stork, emergency room physician and host of “The Doctors”, explains how to read the list of ingredients to know weather or not your are eating whole grains. Ingredient Lists detail ingredients in order of prevalence. So if “Whole Grain” is before other grains like wheat or oats it means the food contains more whole grain than any other single ingredient.
General Mills makes it even easier for you to identify their products that contain Whole Grain by including a white check mark on the box. Make a commitment to add more whole grain to your diet by simply pouring a bowl of cereal with the white check including Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios® and Total®.
So every morning while Jude eat his, “cereal and Cheerios” I feel confident knowing he’s getting whole grains in his diet.
