  • We switched to wholemeal bread and brown rice decades ago and love it.

  • i switched my 4year old recently to wholemeal and he loves it. i started giving it for toast in the morning but he loves the sandwiches with it too (but dislikes the crust)

  • Wholemeal bread is good but could be better.

  • My kids grew up on white bread. How sad is that! My daughter still only eats white but my son experiments with quite a few different ones

  • We’ve been using brown bread and brown rice for years. It takes a little getting used to the rice, but it’s healthier.

  • Brown – in all its forms wholemeal, rye, lots of grains and seeds. White bread is a VERY BAD option since it is full of refined carbohydrates and sugars, lacking ALL the natural vital B-vitamins from the grains. The best part is thrown away.. and while they might add a few artificial chemicals and nutrients in the while to get you to buy it this doesn’t fix it up; white bread is still TRASH and affects your body as badly cakes/do nuts. Haven’t looked back since we switched.

  • I used to use white until a friend of mine says eating brown is much healthier and the kids will get used to it if you start them off with it . The downside is that brown bread loses its softness a bit faster than white and then it becomes toast .

  • White bread for my kids :)

  • We have been using wholemeal bread and brown rice for a number of years now.

  • Yes We have white bread in our house! I don’t like much other!

  • Not all like Wholemeal. My niece hates it and will not even touch it. She enjoys mulit-grain. If you use multigrain ensure the grain is soft. Some that are harder than others have a tendency to get stuck in your teeth.

  • Usually white but I’ve been told off by my parents that I need to feed my daughter multigrain or whole meal bread as it’s better for us

  • White bread at its worst is like junk food. It contains salt, sugar and is low in fibre. The nutritional content is actually very low. I used multi grain bread. It is high in fibre, has seeds which contain good oils for cholesterol, tastes much better than white bread and keeps you feeling fuller for longer. (No, I don’t work for a Bread board)!

  • Anything but white bread, it lacks nutrition and is often stored as far. Wholemeal, whole grains, sour dough, rye….there’s so many other options that are way healthier than white, try until you find one they love

  • I use rye bread.
