ANSWER: Whole Grains


Meet the Grain Group! Eating foods rich in fiber, such as whole grains, as part of a healthy diet, provides several health benefits. These include: reducing the risk of coronary heart disease, reducing the incidence of constipation, and helping with weight management.

MyPyramid recommends eating the equivalent of six ounces of grain products daily for people on a 2,000 calorie diet (to find out your personalized MyPyramid Plan, go to http://mypyramid.gov).
