Keeping Teens Healthy: Whole-Grains Recipes

The Journal of Nutrition & Food services recently reported that teens ages 13 to 19 do not consume enough whole grains. The study of the Univ. of Minnesota reveals that teens are simply not consuming the recommended three servings of whole grains per day. The same study reported that half of the teens did not consume any whole grains on the day they were surveyed and only one third of teens consume 0.5 ounces of whole grains on a daily basis.

Increased consumption of whole grains can provide health benefits for growing teens and can lead to healthier choices as adults. Whole grains provide a healthy boost of vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients and are also rich in carbohydrates.
