Teach Your Kids to Go Whole Wheat Bread

Grown-ups know whole-wheat bread is more nutritious but how do you get your teens into a more fiber-rich diet?

Start at the top. The easier way to get your kids started on right eating is to explain the differences between whole grain bread and ordinary white bread. Whole grain bread uses almost all of the grain-hence the word "whole"--particularly the vitamin and mineral-rich bran. White bread is refined, making it white, fluffier and softer--but without the vitamins and minerals.

Whole-grains have more vitamins. And which vitamins are these? Whole grain breads has more vitamin B-thiamine, riboflavin, folate, niacin-as well as magnesium, zinc and iron, fiber, all of which are essential to the efficient functioning of your body.

Look before you leap. Dark-colored bread isn't necessarily whole-grain. In fact, some bakeries add brown sugar or molasses to give it that fiber-rich look now in vogue. Read the label on the packaging before you bring the bread to the check-out counter.

Start with a mix. Alternate whole-grain bread with the more "popular" white bread.

Great for sandwiches that travels. Because whole-grain has more "body", it's actually a better choice for sandwiches since it doesn't absorb dressings and sauces as quickly or as much as ordinary white bread.

Bread isn't fattening but don't overdo it. Make sure that you explain that while whole-grain bread is healthier, that doesn't mean you can eat unlimited amounts. Bread isn't fattening per se, but any food eaten in excess of your caloric needs becomes stored fat.
