Big G Cereal Healthy Living Giveaway

I worry about my family getting enough whole grains in their diet.  Did you know that 95 percent of Americans don’t get enough whole grain in their diet?
With many Americans making New Year’s Resolutions to live healthier, it’s never been easier to get the whole grain you want without sacrificing taste. Every Big G cereal contains at least 8 grams of whole grain per serving, with more than 20 General Mills cereals delivering 16 grams or more. (At least 48 grams of whole grain are recommended daily.) Big G cereals are America’s number one source of whole grain at breakfast, providing America with more whole grain at breakfast than any other breakfast food from any other manufacturer.
Only whole grain gives you the vital nutrients from the complete grain. The health benefits of whole grains can’t be pinpointed to one particular component of the grain. It’s the “whole grain package” that makes the difference. In addition to fiber, whole grain contains antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients that help ensure a healthy diet. A diet high in whole grain has been found to help with diabetes and weight management, and it may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.


Get into the whole grain habit by just looking for the big white check on Big G cereals! Cereal is already one of the healthiest breakfast choices you can make, and the entire Big G cereal line is made with whole grain, making it a great choice. Big G cereals have the brands and flavor your family will love, including Cheerios®, Lucky Charms®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Honey Nut Cheerios®, Fiber One® and Total®.
To be sure the other foods you are choosing have the healthy whole grain you need, just follow these two easy rules:
1.Look for a whole grain symbol like the big white check on Big G cereals or the Whole Grain Stamp developed by the Whole Grains Council
2.Scan the ingredient list and choose foods that list a whole grain near the top of the list

  9. Hi Tiffanee! You know me - super healthy =o) But we do eat the Big G cereals in hopes of eating a little bit better. We are on a Cinnamon Taost Crunch kick right now. My kids love it. And wouldn't this be awesome?!?!

  10. As much as I love the not so healthy stuff, we do eat pretty healthy. Well, minus all the cheese and sour cream =o) I try to give my kids fruits and veggies for every meal and I'm trying now to give them more raw veggies. They love carrotts and brocolli but now I'm not cooking them. They have more nutrients that way, right?
