Nestle' Breakfast Cereals are Packed with Whole Grains | Rolled Into One Mom

Our Kids Need The Best

If there's one thing I always make sure of when I became a Mom - it is to provide the best to my kids. Be it skincare products, clothes, and especially food. Good nutrition is on top of my priorities as a mother because I know that when they grow up healthy, everything else will follow. 

One of the many ways I make sure that this happens is through research. I look up brands that I know have health and nutrition as their primary advocacy. That is why, we are a loyal to Nestle

Nestle has recently added whole grain to their cereals. People who regularly eat whole grain tend to:

✔️ Have a better nutrient intake (higher fibre, vitamins, and minerals)
✔️Have a healthier body weight
✔️Are less likely to gain weight over time 
✔️Have a healthier heart (reduced risk of cardiovascular disease) 
✔️ Are less likely to have diabetes and certain cancers 

But unfortunately, people don't consume enough whole grain. 

Here is what Nestle found out:

National Nutrition Survey: Only 1 in 20 Filipino Children Get Benefits From Whole Grains

Manila, Philippines - most children in the Philippines are getting less than the recommended intake of whole grains and fiber according to the 8th National Nutrition Survey conducted by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute and Department of Science and Technology
(FNRI-DOST). The study, which looked at the whole grain consumption of different Filipino population groups, revealed that only 1 in 20 children consume whole grain. It also showed that, overall, 99% of Filipinos do not consume >48g of whole grain per day which is the US whole grain intake recommendation. 

In response to these findings, Nestle Philippines hosted a "master class" event to discuss the importance of eating a healthy breakfast and encourage families to add more whole grain to their daily nutirition for a healthier future. Nestle staff,  nutrition experts, and media explored the nutritious ingredients in KOKO KRUNCH® and prepared their own breakfast cereals. 

"The 8th National Nutrition Survey clearly demonstrates the need to increase awareness amongst Filipinos of the importance of eating whole grains. It is alarming that the consumption levels in the Philippines are far below recommended levels and that the vast majority of Filipinos are missing out on the benefits associated with whole grains, which include lower body weight, and cholesterol levels, as well as reduced risk of diabetes and other chronic diseases," commented Ma. Adrienne Constantino, Former Supervising Science. Research Specialist of Nutrition Assessment and Monitoring Division, FNRI. 

"We believe that breakfast is more good than a good start to your day - it's the foundation for a better future. We want Moms to feel empowered to make informed and healthy choices, so they can provide the best nutrition for their children. We have made this easier by making whole grain the number one ingredient in all  Nestle Breakfast Cereals that are popular with school children and teens," said Ece Durukan, 
Nestle Regional Nutrition and External Affairs Manager for Asia, Middle East, Africa. 

Nestle Is Still The Best Choice
