Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice Will Please Your Kids’ Picky Palates! (Giveaway)

With four children, it’s almost impossible to please everyone when it comes to making dinner. But one thing that all of my kids have always liked is rice. You can’t go wrong with rice. It goes with everything. It’s easy to make. And, best of all, kids love it!

Mom Central recently arranged for me to receive a brand-new product called Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice, and we had it for dinner tonight. Everyone gobbled it up! My kids had no idea they were eating a “whole grain” food or anything different from their usual rice. It was delicious! And it was so easy to cook. I just simmered it on the stove for 10 minutes, and then let it sit covered for an additional 5 minutes. It came out perfectly. We cooked up some chicken and a veggie, and the meal was great!

We tried the Long Grain variety, but they also have Chicken, Broccoli Cheddar, Taco Style, Sweet Tomato, and Garden Vegetable. Yum! Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice is the first and only whole grain rice that looks and tastes like white rice. That makes it even more appealing to kids, who may turn up their noses at anything that doesn’t look like “regular” rice. As a mom, you can feel good about serving a dish that’s made with natural ingredients, is low in fat and cholesterol-free, and is a good source of fiber and whole grains.
