Review: Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice

Aside from fruit, my children seem to have a built-in radar to warn them against any foods that are healthy. Over the past year or so General Mills began to make all their cereals whole grain with less sugar and my children did not notice the difference. Uncle Ben's succeeded in the same way with their better-for-you Whole Grain White Rice.

White rice is one of the few things that my children do not complain about eating during meals. One of the easiest meals that always pleases our 6yr old son is Chicken Piccata and white rice. It is great if you are short on time, but still want to serve something hot and wholesome.




The easy meal below just consists of Michael Angelo's Chicken Piccata (from BJ's Wholesale Club) and Uncle Ben's Whole Grain White Rice. Just prepare each separately per the package instructions and plate it like this or you can cut the chicken into smaller pieces and mix it into the rice for younger children.


When we made the switch from our regular white rice to the whole grain white rice from Uncle Ben's, my son did not notice the difference. He ate every bite as usual.


Uncle Ben's new Whole Grain White Rice comes in both plain long grain and flavored varieties, such as Chicken, Broccoli Cheddar, Sweet Tomato, and Taco Style. For recipes using these and other Uncle Ben's products, visit Uncle Ben's Recipes & More.
