Grains of Goodness Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

CONGRATULATIONS TO:

I'm bad at it, but trying to use more whole wheat pasta. Also love fiber one products...
March 3, 2010 11:14 AM

Did you know that studies have found that a diet rich in whole grain can be helpful in maintaining a healthy heart, managing weight and may also reduce the risk for diabetes and certain types of cancer?

Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients important for a healthy diet. General Mills is the only leading cereal company to guarantee whole grain in every box.** Every day, General Mills´ Big G Cereals - which include Cheerios, Fiber One, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Chex, Total and Lucky Charms - deliver 35 million servings of whole grain to Americans. General Mills makes it easy to find whole grains, just look for the white check on the top of every Big G cereal box for your whole grain guarantee.

In a national survey, 91 percent of Americans said they want to incorporate more whole grain foods into their diets. In fact, nine out of 10 people in the U.S. still do not eat the minimum recommended daily amount of whole grain (at least three servings, or 48 grams). Do you? Why not start keeping track of how many whole grains you eat to find out?

You're invited to take the Whole Grain Awareness Challenge.
Visit http://www.wholegrainnation.com/ to put your whole grain knowledge to the test. I'll be honest, I only got 6 of 10 correct.



TO WIN: ONE reader can win a "Grains of Goodness" prize pack that includes the following: 2 VIP coupons for Big G cereal products, A breakfast chiller, A large cereal mug, A tote bag. Personally I love this breakfast chiller. . . take breakfast with you anywhere!
