Let'sTalk

1. Why should I look for whole grains in my breakfast cereal?

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.

2. How can I increase my whole grain intake?
  1. Look out for 'whole' on the label – wholemeal, whole wheat and whole oats are all whole grains.
  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.
  5. Use wholemeal breadcrumbs to create a crunchy topping in savoury dishes.
  6. Choose rice cakes, rye crispbread, muesli bars with oats or other whole grains or plain popcorn as a whole grain snack.
