French Toast with Mixed Berries Go for 4+ serves of grain-based foods each day
According to official dietary guidelines, a healthy diet should contain at least four serves of 'breads and cereals' each day. The breads and cereals category also includes other grain-based foods such as pasta, rice, noodles and cous cous.
One serve is equal to two slices of bread, around one cup of flaked breakfast cereal or a cup of cooked rice or pasta. Its important that mum and your family aim for 4+ serves of grain-based foods each day as grain foods contain a wide range of essential nutrients including carbohydrate, fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals, and they are also low in fat.
Wholegrains in particular pack a punch and are a more powerful source of all these essential nutrients. Research has shown that eating a diet containing wholegrains can help protect against a number of chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.
So yourself or someone special with these delicious grain-based recipes on her special day and youll keep her healthy as well.
