If you are like most Americans, you are not getting enough daily grains in your diet. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 6 servings of grains per day. Only 4% of Americans say they are eating that level according to a new poll published by the Grain Foods Foundation. This poll found the average daily grain consumption was 3.2 servings, barely half the recommended 6 servings per day. The federal guidelines recommend “make half your grains whole”–yet only 11% of total grain consumption is whole grains. Six servings of grains each day is easy: have cereal for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and a cup of pasta with dinner!
