Whole grains include the "whole" "grain" while refined grains like white bread and white rice include only the endosperm.
Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed.
WHOLE GRAINS: This definition means that 100% of the original kernel – all of the bran, germ, and endosperm – must be present to qualify as a whole grain. Whole grains or foods made from them contain all the essential parts and naturally-occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed.

This infographic outlines how important food education is for children's health, well-being and school performance. Packing a nutritious, waste-free lunch helps kids make connections about where food comes from (i.e. NOT from a cardboard box or plastic container)! Get kids involved in gardening projects and they're more likely to eat well for the rest of their lives.
The Significance of Food Education Infographic shows how education and dietary changes can cause big changes in health, school and even finances.

When Kids Won't Eat Healthy School Lunches: Should Parents Get the Blame? Enter Food Education!

Healthy Eating for Picky Eaters | If we force small children to eat more than they want, and to eat foods they find distasteful we’re more likely to create a picky eater. Read More of This Article Here: http://www.momshearth.com/healthy-eating-picky-eaters/

Nutrition is very essential for children as it helps to stabilize their energy, sharpen their minds and even out their moods. Eating the right, balanced diet is very important for the proper functioning of your kid’s body. However, nowadays, more and more children are opting for unhealthy, junk food in lieu of healthy, nutritious foods, including fruits and vegetables
If you’re the parent of a picky eater, mealtimes can be frustrating. It’s also frightening to worry that your child isn’t getting proper nutrition because they’re refusing so many foods. Here are six tips for dealing with picky eaters
Do you have picky eaters? We've got some words of wisdom for you today! :) | Healthy Ideas for Kids
PICKY EATERS ADVICE: “[K]ids don’t get a say in what you buy! You are the parent; if you don’t buy bad food, they won’t eat bad food. I know this flies in the face of today’s ‘never say never to a kid’ wisdom, but how’s that been working? So say no. That means: no ice cream in the freezer. (Take them out for some as a treat, but keep it out of the house.) No sugary cereals, crackers, chips, and the like in the pantry.” | Bob Harper, The Skinny Rules, p. 110
