I think cereals make a wonderful breakfast meal or lovely snack. One of my favorite brands for foods, including cereal, is General Mills. General Mills is always trying to improve their products. Recently, they decided to have more whole grains than any other ingredient in 50 of their cereals! To show this, they are marking those cereals with a white check on the front of the box. All cereals with the white check have at least 9 grams of whole grains per serving. When you see whole grains listed as the first ingredient on their cereals, you know there’s more of it than any other ingredient. Plus, the side of the box should list how many grams of whole grains are in each cereal. With a daily recommendation of 48 grams of whole grains daily, these cereals can help you reach that goal.
Now, that you know that the General Mills cereals are healthier for you, did you know this applies to your favorite tasty cereals? I received five boxes of cereals with the white check on them. I was pleased to find the white check on the box of Lucky Charms (with delicious marshmallows), Cinnamon Toast Crunch (so yummy!), Honey Nut Cheerios, Cheerios, and Total. So, you can still continue eating your favorite cereals while getting more whole grains now. Isn’t that a wonderful thing? You can find out more about this whole grain movement at the Whole Grain Nation site.
