TORONTO — Weston Bakeries Ltd. announced it has added omega-3 DHA to its Wonder+ Headstart 100% Whole Wheat bread. Omega-3 DHA is a type of polyunsaturated fat that contributes to the normal development of the brain, the eyes and the nerves, and also has been linked to improved learning and visual abilities in children.
"Wonder+ Headstart is Canada’s first and only 100% whole wheat sliced bread enriched with omega-3 DHA — a nutrient that helps give a big head start to little brains," said Craig Hutchison, vice-president of marketing and sales at Weston Bakeries. "Headstart is a proud addition to the Wonder+ 100% whole wheat bread family and it builds on our continued commitment to providing nutritious and delicious bakery products to Canadian children."
Every serving (two slices) of Wonder+ Headstart 100% Whole Wheat sliced bread contains 15 mg of omega-3 DHA supplied from Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd.
