NO GRAIN, NO GAIN
Breakfast cereal is made mainly from grains, and not only do they taste great - when eaten with milk or yoghurt, they give you a wide range of nutrients, including carbohydrates, protein, fat, sugar, fibre and several vitamins and minerals.
And if you choose a cereal made with whole grain, you’re getting even more of your body’s needs met. Whole grain means all the edible parts of the grains are still there, and in this case, they’re a source of vitamins, minerals, fibre, starch and other nutrients.
FORTIFY YOUR DIET
Check the Nutrition Information panel on your cereal box to see if your cereal is fortified. When cereals are fortified, it means they contain added vitamins and minerals such as calcium for healthy bones and teeth, as well as vitamin B6 for immune system function. So, together with milk, it gives you more of the good stuff!
- In Person
Whole grain provides a range of vitamins, minerals, fibre, starch and other nutrients – that’s why it’s often recommended we eat three to four services a day ((Eatforhealth.gov.au 2015, 'How much should I eat from the grain (cereal) group?' para. 5). Breakfast is a good way to get some whole grain early in the day.

- Look out for 'whole' on the label – wholemeal, whole wheat and whole oats are all whole grains.
- Swap refined white breads, pasta and white rice for whole grain varieties (brown).
- Start your day with a breakfast cereal that clearly states it is made with whole grains.
- Mix wild rice with white rice, or switch to brown rice.
- Use wholemeal breadcrumbs to create a crunchy topping in savoury dishes.
- Choose rice cakes, rye crispbread, muesli bars with oats or other whole grains or plain popcorn as a whole grain snack.
