Grains Should Be Major Part of Infant Diets – Study

January 20, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
A new study that analyzed infant data from the 2001-2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) highlights the importance of grains as part of a healthy infant diet, as well as the potential risks of excluding them, especially reduced intake of key nutrients such as fiber, magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin. Published in the nutrition journal Nutrients, the study was designed to assess grain food relationships with nutrient and energy intakes, diet quality, and food group consumption in infant grain consumers relative to non-consumers. The study found grain consumption was generally associated with higher nutrient intakes, better diet quality scores, and broader food group intake. The study included both whole grains and refined grains.[Image Credit: © Grains Food Foundation]
