Shelby, our nutritionist, has been informing us about the different food groups. Today, we will focus on the grains group!

The grains group contains any food that is made from oats, rice, wheat, barley, and cornmeal. Examples of grain products include breakfast cereals, pasta, bread, tortillas, and grits. Grains are great sources of several nutrients such as B vitamins, dietary fiber, iron, selenium, and magnesium. The daily recommendation for grains is 3-4 ounces. The grain group is categorized into two subgroups: whole grains and refined grains.

Whole grains include brown rice, whole-wheat flour, and oatmeal. Refined grains remove the iron, B vitamins, and dietary fiber. These include white bread, white rice, white pasta, and white flour. At least half of the grains should be whole grains. Eating whole grains may help maintain a healthy body weight because they make you feel fuller and more satisfied. Whole grains also assist with lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and other health-related issues.

This week is National Folic Acid Awareness Week! Folic acid is an artificially added vitamin used to enrich certain foods. Folate is the naturally occurring vitamin in foods like leafy green vegetables, beans, and oranges that folic acid replicates.

Folic acid consumption is important for everyone, but especially women before and during pregnancy as the vitamin can protect unborn babies from serious birth defects. The CDC recommends all women of reproductive age consume about 400mg of folic acid, and pregnant women 600mg, each day.

Where to get folic acid?

- Vitamins with folic acid
- Foods that contain vitamin B : enriched breads, pastas, rice, and cereals
- Foods that contain folate: beans, peas, lentils, oranges, orange juice, asparagus, broccoli, and leafy green vegetables
