Many of us, and our children, have become so used to white bread that we don’t like the flavor of natural, whole wheat bread. Switching from white bread to whole wheat bread is easy if you if you bake your own bread.
The trick to switching to whole wheat bread is to make the change slow. Begin with a basic white bread recipe. Replace 1/4 cup bread flour with 1/4 cup whole wheat flour. Serve this bread to your family for a month or two. Children probably won’t even notice that there is whole wheat flour in the bread they are eating.
Gradually increase the amount of whole wheat flour, a quarter cup at a time. In a few months, you will be able to make and serve light wheat breads to your family without shocking their taste buds.
