Bread, Cereal, Rice and Pasta Group
To get the fiber you need, choose several servings a day of foods made from whole grains.
One serving is 1 slice of bread, 1 ounce of ready-to-eat cereal, or 1/2 cup of cooked cereal, rice or pasta.
Choose foods that are made with little fat or sugars, like bread, English muffins, rice and pasta.
Go easy on the fat and sugars you add as spreads, seasonings or toppings.
When preparing pasta, stuffing and sauce from packaged mixes, use only half the butter or margarine suggested; if milk or cream is called for, use lowfat milk.
