Grains
Don't be fooled. Read the label. Make sure the word "whole" is the very first ingredient listed. "Multi-grain" isn't enough. Just because it looks brown, doesn't mean it's whole grain.
Start kids off right with whole grains, not white bread and white pasta. If they're not used to whole grains, mix them in gradually.
Buy in bulk and stock up during sales. Packets cost more and are often loaded with salt and sugar. Buy brown rice in bulk and mix with white rice if needed to lower cost. Buy whole grain bread on sale and save in the freezer. Health experts* have chosen these ingredients based on an in-depth review of government surveys and tests for nearly 1,200 foods.
