We’re delighted to see governments around the world adding whole grains to their official dietary recommendations. The latest to do so is Singapore.

The guidance is only for children (up to age 18) and it stipulates just 1 serving a day, in contrast to the 3 or more recommended in the U.S. But it’s a good start, in a part of the world where white rice and refined noodles are the ubiquitous grain choices — so ubiquitous that the Singapore guidelines call the grain group the “Rice and Alternatives” group.

You can access our collection of worldwide recommendations for whole grains – including a PDF of the Singapore guidelines for children – under Whole Grains 101 on this website. If you’re aware of whole grain rules and guidelines in other countries, please write to us so we can add them to our list. (Cindy – August 21, 2008)
