Page 8 April 4th, 2013 ii~i!iii!!!!! ~ =~!iiii]ii !!!iiiiiiiiiii:i Valley News & Views "Mum, when you go to the grocery store, can you buy that new cereal?" my 14 - year-old daughter asked. My younger daughter nodded her head vigorously and added, "It's really healthy cereal, Mum." "Yeah, it's really, really healthy," my older daughter added with a smirk. I think she patted her younger sister on the head for coming up with that approach. "What's the name of the cereal?" I asked a bit skeptically. Neither of my daughters could think of the name of the cereal. One of them remembered the TV jingle and they began reciting it, so I found it on the Internet. I decided to search for this kid-appealing cereal at the grocery store. I was expecting a beckoning cartoon character at kids' eye level. However, the cereal was perched above my head. Maybe it was so new that there wasn't an available spot on a lower shelf. My daughters' pester power paid off, and I added the $4 box of cereal to my cart. This was becoming a research project for me: How do marketing campaigns entice my kids so effectively? I noticed "whole-2rain" and "fortified" on the front of the box, but I think "chocolate" was the selling point. Evidently, the TV ads were more tempting than the cereal flavor because they didn't eat it all in a few days. The cereal box now is perched on a shelf in my cupboard. Well-chosen cereal plays a vital role in kids' nutrition by providing fiber, vitamins, minerals and other key nutrients. To make the most nutrient-rich choices, you have to be a good label reader, including the Nutrition Facts label and the ingredient statement. Many types of cereals provide whole grains in the diet. A whole-grain cereal includes all the parts of the grain, including the fiber- containing bran, the starchy endosperm and the fat- containing germ. Most people fall short of the 25 to 35 grams of fiber that we need each day. Some types of fiber, such as soluble fiber found in oats, may help lower blood cholesterol levels and potentially our risk for heart disease. Fiber also can help you feet full longer and reduce constipation. Kids and adults need to drink plenty of fluids with increased fiber intake. Check out the amount of added sweeteners, which can be in the form of high- fructose corn syrup, dextrose, sucrose (table sugar), molasses, brown sugar or others. Compare the Nutrition Facts labels on several brands at the store. You can "blend down" the sweetness of some cereals by combiningsweetenedcereals with unsweetened cereal. You can boost nutrition more by adding antioxidant- rich fresh or dried fruit, and nuts or seeds to your cereal bowl. Top with calcium-rich milk for a hunger-quenching breakfast. Compare prices. Look at the "price per ounce" on the edge of many store shelves. Usually, servings for cereal are in ounces. Volumewise, an ounce of puffed cereal will appear like more in your bowl than an ounce of granola, so remember that nutrition information is based on serving size.

Get Tips on Using Social Media for Disaster Recovery in North Dakota Crisis Communications Strategies offered during Free SBA/Agility Webinar FARGO - As fires and floods battered many states this past summer and fall, emergency managers, utility companies and the public relied on social media to share updates on the path of various local disasters, where shelters would be located, and how to connect with local and federal recovery services. While social media has become an essential information tool in the midst of a crisis for first responders, many business owners have yet to develop a social media plan to keep their clients and employees in the loop in the event of a disaster. Organizations typically use online tools to promote their products and services, but it's a good idea to consider social media as a useful business continuity resource. Get tips on best practices for creating a crisis communications plan using social media during the April 9 webinar hosted by Agility Recovery Solutions and the U.S. Small Business Administration. The SBA has partnered with Agility to offer business continuity strategies through its "PrepareMyBusiness" website. Visit www. preparemybusiness.org to access previous webinars and for additional preparedness tips. The SBA provides disaster recovery assistance in the form of low-interest loans to homeowners, renters, private nonprofits and businesses of all sizes. To learn more, visit www.sba.gov/disaster.
