Parents weighed all the food their children ate over three days, and researchers calculated whether children were receiving adequate amounts of key nutrients and fibre as part of the study... While the study indicated that most of the children were receiving the recommended amounts of iron, zinc, calcium and vitamin C, only 18 per cent were getting enough fibre... About 14 grams of fibre a day is considered adequate for children aged one to three years, but the study revealed that children aged one to two years are only eating an average of nine grams of fibre a day...

Consumer research commissioned by Go Grains shows that many people, especially women, remain 'carb conscious' and that the industry needs to remain vigilant about rebutting the myths and misconceptions associated with diets that discourage consumption of grain-based foods...
