General Mills | Whole Grain First {5 boxes of cereal giveaway}

"General Mills whole grain first cereal giveaway"

Are you and your family getting the recommended daily amount of whole grains? The Dietary Guidelines recommend people get at least 48 grams of whole grain in their daily diets. If you start your day off with a bowl of General Mills cereal with the white check then you are starting off with at least 9 grams of your daily intake of whole grains. How do you choose products with whole grain? Look for the white check. General Mills has over 50 varieties of cereals that list whole grain as the first ingredient of the cereal, which means the cereals have more whole grain than any other single ingredient. When Daddy B hears whole grain or whole wheat he lets it be known that he thinks it will not taste the same as the other cereals. Wrong! He has been eating the General Mills with the white check cereals for a couple weeks now and I made no mention of the “made with whole grain”. He just sees Honey Nut Cheerios, Lucky Charms and dives right in without a single complaint or concern. Now the boys could care less about whole grain but have been getting it all their short little lives. They love Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms and Honey Nut Cheerios. All that matters to them is that they know what the name of the cereal is but Mom knows that not only is it good but its good for them.

Another way you can make sure that the family is getting their daily intake of whole grains: Choose whole grain versions of the foods you love. Great options include whole wheat pasta and whole wheat bread or even whole grain crackers. Also, try different types of whole grain. Use brown rice instead of white rice as a side dish at dinner or popcorn, which is a whole grain, for a snack.
