UF study shows children are open to eating whole grains
The days of children being afraid of whole grains may be coming to an end. A study from the University of Florida shows that when given the option, kids will choose a whole grain snack just as frequently as a refined grain snack. Experts say that when whole grains are added to a balanced diet, the risk of heart disease may be reduced and weight management becomes easier. Starting this fall, schools in Florida will be required to serve only whole-grain products in the cafeteria.
