Boost your immunity with whole grain cereals!

A strong immune system is essential to good health

You can help make your own immune system function well by eating a balanced diet. Starting the day with a whole grain cereal from Nestlé is one way to give your system a morning kick-off. Many of the Nestlé whole grain cereal products are fortified with essential vitamins and minerals to help your immune system function properly.

They help build the immune cells and power their function. Some cereals are fortified with vitamins and minerals to help increase your intake of these essential building blocks. If you combine these with getting enough sleep, doing plenty of exercise, and keeping your stress levels low, you’ll be on the way to a strong immune system.
Of course, we all know that it’s important for kids to get their vitamins. But did you know it’s even more important for you to get them as you age? Your immune system needs more support as you get older, and we don’t always get what we need. Roughly one in three seniors have deficiencies of nutrients.

You can also add some immunity-supporting toppers to your Nestlé fortified breakfast cereals. For instance, a bowl of Fitness Original flakes can be combined with fruit and low-fat milk to make a delicious and healthy start to the day. Milk is a nutrient powerhouse, loaded with B vitamins, vitamin C and folate. And the right choice of fruit can give you a boost. Oranges and other citrus are packed with vitamin C, while you’ll also find it in blueberries, along with minerals such as iron, magnesium, and zinc.

But you don’t have to eat your whole grain cereals in a bowl. Try this recipe for Shredded Wheat Breakfast Bars for an easy-to-make and oh so tasty treat that will give your immune system a lift on the go. So, to kickstart your day, grabbing a bowl of Nestlé’s whole grain cereals could be the perfect way to contribute to your immune system. Couple your whole grain Cheerios or Shredded Wheat with a handful of berries, nuts and milk, and your body will thank you.
