Whole Grains Month

September 2018

September is whole grains month and ITCA WIC encourages all of you to make at least half your grains whole! Consuming whole grains has many proven benefits such as reduced risks of cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. The consumption of them can lower cholesterol and blood pressure as well as improve digestion.

The Whole Grains Council has provided the following ways to slowly increase your intake of whole grains:

  • Buy three different loaves of whole-grain bread and taste all of them to see which one you like best.
  • Serve bulgur or brown rice instead of potatoes with dinner one night this month.
  • Look for the Whole Grain Stamp every time you shop.
  • Try a new breakfast cereal with whole grains as the first ingredient.
  • Buy some whole-wheat pasta and try it.
  • Make my favorite whole grain recipe for a friend.
  • On the weekend, try cooking a pot of steel-cut oatmeal.
  • Make pizza for the kids with whole wheat pita as the crust.
  • Serve hamburgers with whole wheat buns this week.
