September is whole grains month. Whole grains keep your heart healthy and are good for digestion and a healthy weight. Choose foods with 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain on the label. Or check the ingredient list to see if the word “whole” is before the first ingredient listed. (for example, whole wheat flour) If it is, it’s whole grain.
The Will County Health Department’s WIC program helps your family to eat healthy by providing healthy whole grain foods and nutrition information! For more information, call our main office at: (815)727-8524 to see if you qualify.
