The best thing (news) since sliced bread

January 31, 2013

Bread sometimes gets a bad rap by the pro Paleo and Dukan followers, but it should never be forbidden for your kids (assuming they don’t have allergies to wheat or gluten), and is more than just a carb, and definitely not a “bad carb”.

You might not have known, but bread is fortified with essential vitamins and minerals for better health. According to Sasko, a 1994 national survey found that 33% of children under the age of six years were deficient in vitamin A and 21% of these children were anaemic. “These results indicate that vitamin A deficiency is a severe, and iron deficiency a moderate, health problem,” they say.

“The negative effects of these and other micronutrient deficiencies on the immunity, growth, cognitive development and mental performance of children is far-reaching and detrimental. For this reason, the fortification of maize meal and wheat flour with six vitamins and two minerals became mandatory in October 2003.”

Sasko breads contain vitamin A (for good vision, normal growth and a healthy immune system), folic acid (helps to form body proteins), B vitamins (for growth and a healthy nervous system), iron (for healthy red blood cells), and zinc (for growth and a healthy immune system).

And if you’re needing some more school sandwich ideas other than cheese, Marmite (my best!!!), meat or peanut butter, then check out some cool recipes at Sasko.
