General Mills Giveaway!

I have another great Giveaway to offer you! Did I ever mention that I love giveaways? I really do. I love giving away free stuff to my great readers. :)

This Giveaway is a pretty nice one for anyone try to eat healthy. I was pretty excited to find 5 boxes of General Mills cereal on my doorstep. They sent me Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios® and Total®. These five cereals are all included in their new White Check program. Every cereal with a White Check on the box has a whole grain listed as part of the number one ingredient. I was excited to see even some of my favs (Lucky Charms) have the White Check.

My Children of course devoured the cereal and loved all of them except for the Total. Which is ok because that is one that I really enjoy.

Here are some Whole Grain suggestions from Dr. Stork:

Start Early! The Dietary Guidelines recommend people get at least 48 grams of whole grain in their daily diets. Get a jump-start on the day’s nutrition by incorporating whole grain into your morning routine. For instance, when choosing cereal make sure whole grain is listed as the first ingredient. One easy choice is cereal with the white check, which have more whole grain than any other single ingredient.

Make Simple Swaps. 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.

Don’t Judge a Food by Its Cover. The front of food packages provide good nutritional cues, but don’t forget to read the ingredients and check the nutrition label and side labels for additional health information. Cereals with the white check even include the amount of whole grain per serving on packaging.

For more information on the importance of whole grain and a chance to enter the “Fast Lane for Whole Grain” sweepstakes, visit www.WholeGrainNation.com.
