Join the Campaign for Whole Grain

Natural Healthy  FoodYou 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!

The Quinoa Project

Want to serve a food that kids love, and that is healthy? Looking for an easy-to-make food that is packed with protein so that you stay full for longer?  Try quinoa!

Organic Quinoa.

Quinoa, pronounced “KEEN-wah,” is a small, grain-like seed that can be used as a substitute for rice or pasta, mixed into salads, and eaten plain or with a little cheese on top. Quinoa is a WHOLE GRAIN, naturally gluten free, and is a complete protein because it contains all nine essential amino acids.

The best part? Quinoa is easy to make…and delicious! You can cook quinoa in advance, and use it throughout the week. Just store it in the fridge and serve it at multiple meals or mixed into other foods. Quinoa can be cooked in a pot on the stove or in a rice cooker. (See the package for exact instructions.)
