The Arizona Nutrition Network just launched a new campaign targeting Whole Grains. The goal is to educate Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program participants on the importance and benefits of eating plenty of whole grains. Whole grains are great because they give you fiber, B vitamins including folate and they are low in fat, reducing your risk of chronic disease like heart disease and helps with weight management. You can start eating more whole grains today by looking for food packages that say “100% whole grain” or food labels with the first food ingredient listed as whole grain i.e. 100% whole wheat bread and whole grain cereal. These tips will help to ensure that you are getting a whole grain food. Visit the Arizona Nutrition Network’s website at www.eatwellbewell.org to learn more about the Whole Grains campaign including recipes, whole grain facts, Champion Mom commercials and lots of other great resources.
