(NC) – Canada’s Food Guide recommends adults aim for 6-8 servings of grain products per day, and make at least half of those whole grain. Yet 7 out of 10 Canadians report they are not getting enough. It’s time to get creative and find new ways to add more whole grains to one’s diet. Whole grain cereals are an easy, economical way to boost your intake of whole grains. Think outside the bowl and find new ways to incorporate them into other foods you enjoy, such as:
Sprinkle whole grain cereal on your yogurt or pudding.
Use whole grain cereal when making muffins and cookies.
Whole grain cereal can make a crunchy topping for salads.
Keep a few snack bags of whole grain cereal in the car with you for times when you are hungry on your commute.
