lots and lots of oatmeal.
I have high cholesterol also, and i've been eating oatmeal and cherios like a madman. I haven't checked my cholesterol yet, but i'm hoping it'll be lower.

How bad was her eating before? I think some people just have cholesterol problems because of genetics, and some because of what they eat. I mean, if it was McDonald's three times a day 5 days a week, then just eating normally should fix it I'd guess.

Also tell her to up her activity level, if she can. I have a bad history of high cholesterol in my family & I seem to keep it in check with lots of exercise.

Mine is 222. It really doesn't fit with me, but it's hereditary. Oatmeal, Cherrios, lots of activity, not a lot of fast food, or a lot of meat.

Saturated fat and transfat are major culprits.
Start replacing your "enriched" wheat products with whole wheat products.

Agree with the exercise. I can't stand the oatmeal but have had good results with increased running/biking. Mine was 262 with decent ratios and is down to 216 with a good HDL/LDL (or visa versa) ratio.

i dislike quaker oatmeal a LOT, but ever since I've tried the real stuff... (steel cut oats), I love it. the texture is great.

tell her to start eating Cheerios .they say in the commercials it drop your cholesterol anyways ! start cooking using Olive oil or pure Canola oil this may help to.
