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...

Survey results show Australians are putting their health at risk by not eating enough core grain foods and by too often choosing foods that should be occasional in a balanced diet... The 2014 Australian Grains & Legumes Consumption & Attitudinal Study is a nationally representative survey commissioned by the Grains & Legumes Nutrition Council (GLNC) to track consumption and to understand Australians' attitudes towards grain foods and legumes, dietary recommendations and the barriers to meeting dietary recommendations... GLNC is advocating for a quantified recommendation within the Australian Dietary Guidelines for the number of serves of legume foods per day, which would help Australians understand the benefits of these foods and guide how often to eat them for good health...

But the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet, which is a higher protein weight-loss diet, includes a serve of high-fibre breakfast cereal and two slices of bread each day... Dr Franklin says rather than focusing on limiting grain foods, it is more important to make good carbohydrate choices in a calorie-controlled diet by choosing to consume core wholegrain foods first and only occasionally eating low-fibre, highly processed foods containing high levels of salt and fat... "We find that including grain foods in the diet is more sustainable in the long term because it allows people to choose from a wide variety of foods and enjoy eating in social situations," Dr Franklin says...

Presented at the Australian Grains Industry Conference in Melbourne in July, GLNC provided an update on the key trends, together with some consumer insights and the potential implications for grain and legume foods... While the scientific evidence consistently links a variety of whole grains with reduced risk of disease and improved nutrition, oats have a universal appeal that is unrivalled by other traditional and commonly consumed whole grains such as wheat, rye or barley... Although porridge, made from rolled or quick oats, is the main form in which Australians consume oats, internationally oats have been incorporated into a variety of foods including oat-based dairy alternatives and fruit and oat liquid breakfast...

Drought, crop disease and pests aside, one of the more subversive threats to Australia's grains industry is fad diets that discourage people from eating grain-based foods... One of the most popular of these in recent times is the Atkins Diet, which advocates minimal intake of carbohydrate-rich foods such as bread, rice and pasta, on the basis that these foods, and the carbohydrates they contain, provide excess energy to the body and are fattening... 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...
