Fruity Oatmeal

Fruity Oatmeal good news, moms!

Instant oatmeal counts as a whole grain and has all the health benefits of steel-cut and old-fashioned varieties—it’s high in cancer-fighting antioxidants and also lowers the risk of heart disease.

Make this in a jiffy: mix 1/4 cup one-minute oats or one packet instant oatmeal with bananas, raisins, or coconut flakes.

Let your preschooler choose the fruits so she feels like she has control over her breakfast.

My daughter, Phoebe, who is 4, loves this! She loves being the little expert these days! She also loves to help me out in the kitchen! :-)
