It takes a lot of time and energy to be a label reader at the grocery store. I've been one ever since my daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I spend a lot of time checking out ingredients and trying to make better choices for my family.
Well, General Mills has now made it easier! The have added a white check to their boxes. This means that cereal has more whole grains than any other single ingredient. How easy! Just look for the check!
General Mills has a great website called Whole Grain Nation that can help you on your quest for eating Whole Grains. There's a great game and sweepstakes where you can navigate through grocery store aisles and identify products that have whole grain as their first ingredient. Then you can enter a sweepstakes to win one each of all 50 whole grain cereals!
From General Mills:
We have added a lot more whole grains to our diet as a family, and I feel so much better. I'm fuller faster, and that feeling stays with me longer. I love that I can find whole grains in some of our favorite cereals including Honey Nut Cheeries (I Love Honey Nut Cheerios), Lucky Charms, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Want to try some of these delicious cereals? Well, how about a great giveaway to help! One of you lucky readers can win a prize pack containing 5 boxes of General Mills with the white check! Woot!
