The Food Pyramid

  1. 1. The Food Pyramid By Caitlin Rector
  2. 3. Grains <ul><li>Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley or another cereal grain is a grain product. Bread, pasta, oatmeal, breakfast cereals, tortillas, and grits are examples of grain products. </li></ul><ul><li>Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel -- the bran, germ, and endosperm. </li></ul><ul><li>Refined grains have been milled, a process that removes the bran and germ. This is done to give grains a finer texture and improve their shelf life, but it also removes dietary fiber, iron, and many B vitamins </li></ul><ul><li>In general, 1 slice of bread, 1 cup of ready to eat cereal, or 1/2 cup of cooked rice, cooked pasta, or cooked cereal can be considered as 1 ounce equivalent from the grains group, </li></ul><ul><li>The chart lists specific amounts that count as 1 ounce equivalent of grains towards your daily recommended intake. </li></ul>

I had the kindergartners I work with look at it, and they loved being able to click on the different links. </li></ul>
