Make the Switch to Whole Grains
By Erin Horner
  

1     I trudged into the house, dropped my backpack by the door, and made a beeline to my favorite after-school spot: the pantry. I was hungry and ready for a snack! What would I choose? Sugary treats called my name, but I refused to listen. I was looking for some quick energy and something healthy too. I knew I needed some grains. I saw white bread and saltine crackers. Those were okay, but not what I was hoping for. Then I spied some popcorn and whole wheat crackers. Much better! Either of them would make a great snack.
 
2     Grains are one of the five major food groups. They give your body much of the iron, B vitamins, and fiber that it needs. Grains are divided into two groups: whole grains and refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel. Refined grains are milled. This process removes part of the grain kernel, the dietary fiber, and other nutrients. Foods made from whole grains are the healthier grain choice.
