|Reviewers Comments: ||This introduction to whole grains explains what whole grains are and how to recognize them, why they are important, and how much of them we should eat. It is based on MyPyramid recommendations and uses images and screenshots from the MyPyramid.gov Web site, along with other vibrant photographs and appropriate graphics. Several interactive questions, diagrams, and animation help enliven the presentation.
Since the Power Point presentation and the fact sheet contain identical information, it may not be necessary to review both with participants. The information is most suitable for an adult audience, but can be used with children and teenagers as well. Because of the density of information in the resource, it is not recommended that it is used as a stand-alone tool. The last slide in the presentation discusses how to calculate recommended amounts of food using MyPyramid.gov. If the internet is available, it may be advantageous to follow up the presentation with a demonstration of how to do this using the MyPyramid Web site.
