Nabisco crackers to include more whole grains

For decades, Nabisco's Wheat Thins and Honey Maid Grahams reigned as some of the healthiest choices in the snack aisle. But in the past few years, consumers have begun to sling around the words "processed foods" and "refined flours" as if they were curses, and embraced new offerings from upstarts like Kashi, a company so committed to whole grains, wheat berries are its logo. New on the list of foods that parents worry about their children eating: Ritz crackers, and the Lunchables that feature the high-calorie, low-nutrient munchable.

On Monday, Kraft announced that this was about to change. In the next three years, it said its signature crackers will enjoy a "significant" increase in their whole grain content.
