What popular kids’ food starts to turn to sugar in their mouth and becomes 100% glucose by the time it’s absorbed?

You guessed it, processed white flour.

But here’s the surprising kicker, it’s the number-one most popular food for most kids:

  • White bread for sandwiches
  • Hamburger buns
  • Pasta
  • Pizza crust
  • Cookies
  • Cakes

They all add up to a very unhealthy diet.

What’s a parent to do? In this week’s video I outline how you can get a quick handle on which grains are good (even great) and which ones need to go.

For many parents it’s not as easy as just knowing which grains to feed their children. It makes a world of difference when you are inspired with tasty, nutritious food. That’s why we’ve created a healthy recipe section here at DrGreene.com.
