-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
THE "DIETARY GUIDELINES" RECOMMEND CHOOSING PRODUCTS WITH WHOLE-GRAIN LISTED AS THE FIRST INGREDIENT.  HOWEVER, IT CAN BE CONFUSING TO FIND PRODUCTS WITH WHOLE-GRAIN, IN THE GROCERY-STORE--AND EVEN HARDER TO KNOW HOW MUCH YOU'RE GETTING, IN THOSE FOODS.  DOCTOR TRAVIS STORK--AN E-R-PHYSICIAN AND HOST OF "THE DOCTORS"--HAS PARTNERED WITH GENERAL MILLS, TO OFFER TIPS FOR GETTING MORE WHOLE-GRAIN INTO YOUR DIET...

(STORK):
"
ONE EASY PLACE TO SUBSTITUTE IN WHOLE-GRAINS IS IN THE CEREAL-, THE BREAD-, OR THE PASTA-AISLE.  BUT, SHOPPERS DO NEED TO READ THE INGREDIENT-LIST, ON THE SIDE OF THE BOX--IF THEY WANT TO GET THE REAL SCOOP.  YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE [THAT] THE WORD 'WHOLE' IS LISTED FIRST, IN THE INGREDIENT-LIST--AND SHOULD BE FOLLOWED BY A GRAIN, LIKE WHEAT.  AND, COMPANIES ARE MAKING IT EASIER AND EASIER:  AS AN EXAMPLE, THE CEREALS WITH THE 'WHITE CHECK' NOW HIGHLIGHT THE GRAMS OF WHOLE-GRAIN, PER SERVING, ON THE SIDE OF THE BOX--BECAUSE, IN THE END, YOU SHOULD KNOW THE INGREDIENTS OF THE PRODUCTS [THAT] YOU BUY."
