Fiber & Whole Grains
Fill Your Day With Fiber
From healthy hearts to happy outlooks, a diet high in fiber can help ensure the all-around wellness of your family. Yet in spite of the strong evidence of the benefits of fiber to overall health, nine out of 10 of us do not get enough of this vital nutrient.1
But what, exactly, is enough?
According to the Institute of Medicine, daily fiber recommendations are based on gender and age. And while at first glance these recommendations would seem simple to achieve, the truth is that most of us fall well short of these healthful goals. That means we’re losing out on all of fiber’s helpful benefits, like promoting good digestive and heart health. 2-4
To help address this shortfall of fiber in our diets, we offer a selection of delicious Kellogg’s cereals — including All-Bran®, Frosted Mini-Wheats®, and Raisin Bran® — that provides a good or excellent source of fiber in every bowl.
But a great-tasting Kellogg’s cereal with fiber is just the start. So to help you make the most of every meal, our Fiber Trackerext-link lets you develop informed choices about the foods you eat — giving you the knowledge you need to transform a good morning into a great day.
