One Mom's Story
Discovering the goodness of whole grains
When I asked my doctor what simple change I could make in my diet to improve my health, she said, “Switch to whole grain versions of foods like bread, cereal, pasta and crackers. Whole grains will help your family have a healthy heart and body weight and better digestion. They also can help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. That means better overall health for the whole family.” So, I started thinking about the grains my family eats, especially the kids. I decided it was worth it to make a few small changes for our health. Now I’m buying oatmeal, brown rice, whole grain cereals and 100% whole grain bread. To be honest, making the switch was easier than I thought. It took a little time, but now we are all enjoying the goodness of whole grains.
