February Dietitian's Pick - Quaker Old Fashioned Oats

Feb Dietitian Pick - Quaker Oats

Five Reasons to Try Quaker Old Fashioned Oats

  1. Whole-grain oats and oat bran may help lower blood cholesterol. One bowl of Old Fashioned Quaker Oats provides two grams of oat soluble fiber.
  2. Adding fiber to your diet can help keep you regular - and oats are a good place to start.
  3. Most experts recommend eating at least 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day from grains, fruits and vegetables to help support a healthy digestive system. And one serving of oats provides four of those grams.
  4. Whole-grain oats are a complex carbohydrate with nutritional benefits. A bowl of booked oatmeal breaks down to become energy that's slowly absorbed by your body.
  5. Quaker Old Fashioned Oats provides 5 grams of protein per serving. Start your day off with a bowl of oatmeal topped with your favorite fruit.
