Grain Foods are the Foods We Love That Love Us Back

Grains, as part of a healthy diet, provide nutrients needed for healthy aging: B-vitamins, magnesium, selenium, iron, folate, and fiber. Grain foods, like milk and dairy, provide nutrient density in the American diet and are a source of protein, calcium and B-vitamins, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin.

Bread is the perfect vehicle for delivery of nutrients that contribute to healthy aging. Sandwiches, wraps, and crackers can carry needed protein-rich foods, vegetables and healthy fats.
