You have the power to improve the health of children in your very own community by launching a campaign to serve more whole grains in day care homes and centers! And what better time than now since September is National Whole Grains month! Eating at least one serving of whole grains daily can help lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and stroke, and can help maintain a healthy body weight. Barley, wheat, bulgur, rye and oats are all whole grains that can be incorporated into a healthy diet. Some whole grains are even gluten-free , such as buckwheat, corn, millet, quinoa, and rice. Start training providers now to ditch processed foods and start serving more whole grains!
