Grain products form the base of the Food Guide Pyramid - six to 11 servings are recommended daily. By TERI JOHNSON Staff Writer Three Washington County Hospital employees have become breadwinners of a different sort, thanks to a recent contest. The hospital's nutrition services department sponsored an in-house bread-making competition during March, which was National Nutrition Month. Employees rose to the challenge by submitting 15 entries. Bread was selected because grain products form the base of the Food Guide Pyramid, and six to 11 servings are recommended daily, says Peggy Kemp, the hospital's clinical nutrition manager.
