Eating Healthier This Year

I would say that every year I make it a goal to serve healthier meal choices to my family. As I get older and more informed, I am learning that many so called healthy meals are just the opposite.

One of my children's favorite breakfast items is cereal. Of course, it has gotten a bad rap in the past of being loaded with sugar and not very 'good for you'. Not that this isn't true of many cereals out there.

So, I was very excited to learn about what General Mills is doing. They have taken more than 50 varieties of their cereal and put whole grain as the first ingredient on the label.

What does that mean for you? It means that there is more whole grain than any other ingredient in their cereals. Here is what they had to say:

"In connection with healthier lifestyles, a diet rich in whole grain has been linked to healthier body weights, and it may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers."

All you need to do when shopping is to look for the white check on these cereals boxes. Very easy!


For more information, visit their whole grain website (it is worth checking it out!)
