Children are such picky eaters as it is that bread is yet another food to consider when giving it to your child. The choices of bread are endless but The American Academy of Pediatrics says that “whole wheat bread offers a nutritional advantage over white bread.” Now before you go out and buy a loaf of wheat bread you need to make sure that is says 100% whole wheat and on the ingredients whole wheat should be listed as the first ingredient. Whole wheat breads have more vitamin B6, vitamin E, magnesium, folic acid, copper, zinc, and manganese. The breads that just say wheat are usually a mixture of enriched white flour and whole wheat flour and will have less fiber. When it comes to taste and you can’t get your child to eat the 100% whole wheat then look for a white bread that is high in calcium and fiber. Just remember when your in the store comparing bread, that you check the ingredients and the serving size!
