Surveys Find Most Canadians Don't Eat Enough Daily Grain

January 4, 2011: 10:10 AM EST

Two surveys conducted by Harris/Decima on behalf of Dempster's Bakery found only 10% of Canadians are eating the recommended amount of grain per day. The majority in all age groups fell short of the recommended 6-8 servings per day despite more than 80% of respondents agreeing about the positive health benefits of whole grains. The 25-34 year olds are doing the best with 15% reaching the goal. Dieticians say the problem stems from misinformation and not understanding which foods contain the right carbohydrates. They recommend simple changes such as oatmeal for breakfast and whole grain bread or pasta to meet the requirements.
