Just look for the green banner.
The bold, bright green banner with the whole grain tick on our packs shows our commitment to making it as easy as possible for you and your family to get tasty whole grain every morning. Wherever you see the green banner, you can be sure the cereal contains at least 8 g of whole grain in each serving. Guaranteed. That’s pretty helpful when you’re rushing round the supermarket and there’s no time to think, let alone read the small print.
A whole lot of grains
One bushel of wheat contains around a million individual whole grain kernels.
Chewing It Over
People have been eating whole grains for more than 17,000 years – they picked seeds, rubbed off the husks and chewed the kernels raw or boiled them in water.
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 five servings a day But research shows we’re not getting enough. Fortunately, breakfast is a good way to get some whole grain first thing. So we’re always working behind the scenes to make sure our breakfast cereals give you and your family a daily dose of the good stuff.
