Happy National #BreadMonth! It's all about how to #GoWithTheGrain. Wholesome, nutritious, delicious, and enriched grain-based foods provide many nutrients Americans are missing from their diets. Follow along for how to fold nutrients into your diet, while enjoying your favorite baked goods. #BreadMonth #GetGrains
Grain foods, like bread, rolls, and bagels are a great way to begin the day because, as complex carbohydrates, they provide essential fuel for our bodies. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends 6 grain servings a day with at least half being whole grains. #BreadMonth #GetGrains
Grain foods contribute vital, often under-consumed, nutrients to the diet, including 43.7% of all fiber. Approximately two-thirds of the grain contribution to total fiber intake comes from enriched grains. #BreadMonth #GetGrains

Active military and veterans need a balanced diet and whole and enriched grains are convenient, economical, and nutritious for busy people.
The baking industry supports our veterans. In fact, ABA is a member of the Baking Industry Alliance (BIA), a group that joined forces with the USO Pathfinder® program. The BIA recognizes the importance of engaging with military and veteran communities to help ease the transition from military careers to the civilian workforce. Learn more about this partnership.
Does your company employ veterans? Does your company participate in a community service day that provides resources to veterans? If your company supports veterans, ABA wants to know about it and wants to share your message.
For more information on the BIA-USO Pathfinder® partnership, contact Christina Donnelly, ABA Director of Industry Relations and Strategic Initiatives.
