Grains Group

Aim to make half the grains you eat whole grains.

Foods in the grains group give our body energy to help us run, jump, and play. There are two types of grains: whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains have more fiber. Fiber acts like a broom in our bodies to help us get rid of waste. This helps us have a healthy digestive system and a healthy heart. Eat whole grains like whole wheat bread, brown rice, and oatmeal.
