Does the crust on bread really have lots of nutrients?

Or is that just an lie to get kids to eat the whole sandwich?

  • nope! no more nutrients in the crust than the rest of the bread. It's just the part that gets hard and darker due to heat. The exact same ingredients are in the crust as in the middle

  • i dunno really but I would make sure the bread is whole wheat so that even if the kiddos dont like the crust (which I still dont lol) they're still getting plenty of nutritional value.

  • I've never heard that. It wouldn't have any more nutrients. Maybe less because it is exposed to more air.

  • I have never actually met anyone who didn't eat crusts; I thought that was a myth...

  • I wouldn't think it would make a difference, it's the same stuff that's inside the bread just browned. My DD does not eat crust but we do buy 100% whole wheat bread when I buy it.
