My daughter likes to eat organic flapjacks and dried fruits like pear, raisins and apple. My daughter also eats wetabix and wholegrain cereals like cheerios. Sometimes she eats dried cereal as a snack.

Cereal! I eat it all the time and every kind is my favorite. Make sure it says on the box if its rich in fiber though...You also wanna look for WHOLE wheat.

Quinoa is excellent, and my kids love it. Quick & easy to cook and really nutritious.

For me anything 100% Whole Wheat. I like to eat 100% WW English muffins, sandwich bread and sandwich rolls. One of my favorite cereals when I do eat cereal Cheerios, Fiber One, and Raisin Bran (lots of sugar but a childhood favorite). I'm also a big fan of salads. My little one enjoys most of these choices except the 100% WW bread or brown bread as she calls it. I like to get her the White Wheat, but she eats so much fruit that I try not to worry about her white bread intake.

My kids LOVE Triscuits and the FiberOne muffin mixes. And for some reason my oldest rejects all cooked vegetables, so we have salad quite a bit.

I make fruit smoothies and add ground flax seed to them. Also we have a lot of graham crackers, they have a fair amount of fibber and grains.

Whole or cut fruits and vegetables such as bananas, apples, strawberries, peaches, broccoli, carrots, green beans for fiber. We consciously buy whole grain cheerios, whole grain bread and pasta. Recently, I powdered quinoa grain in the blender and added it to whole wheat flour dough that I make to cook flat breads (called rotis in India). I also prefer buying whole grain snacks such as whole wheat bunny crackers.

I don't eat grains, whole or otherwise. Wether whole grains are "important to a wholesome diet" depends on who you ask. We follow the Paleo Diet and we are all healthy as can be.

Kale sauteed in chicken broth is one of my son's favorites. Also I recently got him flax seed waffles that are a little bit more expensive than regular waffles but a great way to give him what he needs. He loves them!

try the frosted mini wheats, they have loads of iron, and also have fiber in them too

[deleted account]

For fiber we do a large variety of veggies and fruits, they are the best sources of fiber. Whole grains, which contain phytic acid, actually prevent the body from absorbing certain nutrients. You can eat them but they should be eaten with other certain vitamins which counter the effect. http://www.NaturalNews.com/030512_whole_...
We don't really do much whole grains...

I am crazy about those fiber plus bars, too! Also used to live on hi-fi bars, which you can only get at slimming world. There's also scan bran & oat bran which are incredibly high in fiber. Those are a love em or hate em food, as you have to prepare them to be eaten...not nice on their own. :p

Fiber is what I actively try to incorporate in my diet the most; I'm all about it! I try to get it out of fruits and veggies as much as possible. I actually make the roasted broccoli recipe I got on COM, at least 3 times a week! Otherwise, I'll get it out of whole grain or wheat carbs like english muffins, breads, pastas, etc. Another weeknight dinner staple is a kale, chicken sausage, and white bean skillet. The kate and beans pack the fiber and the chicken sausage provides protein.

Fiber and protein content are the two things I always check nutritional labels for.

I have a real hard time with this one. I just recently changed my eating habits so I guess I would have to say it is a toos up between my multi-grain pasta and my 12 grain bread.
