What is wholegrain?

All grains start life as whole grains. In their natural state growing in the fields, whole grains are the entire seed of a plant. This seed (kernel) is made up of three key edible parts – the bran, the germ, and the endosperm – protected by an inedible husk. Only the inedible husk is removed from wholegrain to make it suitable for human consumption.

The inedible husk is removed, and rest of the grain is retained which is called- Wholegrain.

 

“Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed in their original proportions”.  Whole grains are generally seen as more nutritious than refined cereals, mainly due to their higher level of dietary fibers, minerals, and certain B-vitamins.

We use wholegrain oats in our GERBER cereal product.

What is dietary diversity?

Dietary diversity is number of different food groups consumed over a period. Children’s food preferences and dietary habits are influenced mainly by environmental and social factors. Early experiences with nutritious, varied flavors and diverse foods increase the likelihood that children will choose a healthier diet in later life because they like the taste and the variety of healthy foods. This diverse diet exposure thus, could be useful in shaping healthy dietary habits and preferences in this age group.

 

Dietary diversity helps in consumption of all or most of the nutrients which are necessary for a developing child during this age. We have the diversity of 4 food groups coming together in the GERBER Cereal range.
