IMPORTANCE OF
WHOLE GRAIN

Here is why it is important to eat whole grain in our day-to-day diet.

Containing protein, fibre, B vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals, you can find at least 8g of whole grain per serving from any of our cereals with the Nestlé Green Banner!

What are whole grains?

Every grain grows whole grain, but a grain is only whole grain if it has all three natural parts intact - this includes the bran, the starchy centre and the core, all full of nutrients!

WHAT'S SO GOOD ABOUT WHOLE GRAIN?

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 serves a day (Eatforhealth.gov.au, 2015)1. Breakfast is a good way to get some whole grain first thing. So we’re always working behind the scenes to make sure our whole grain cereals give you and your family a daily dose of the good stuff.

2. How can I increase my whole grain intake?

  2. Swap refined white breads, pasta and white rice for whole grain varieties (brown).
  3. Start your day with a breakfast cereal that clearly states it is made with whole grains.
  4. Mix wild rice with white rice, or switch to brown rice.
