I love oatmeal and I love fruit. I was so pleased to receive Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit Vanilla Peach and Apple Cinnamon for review. Oatmeal and fruit...what a wonderful combination! Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit is very yummy and convenient. It comes in 6-oz microwavable cups. All you have to do is heat in microwave for 45 seconds and then eat. You don't need to add water, milk, or any liquid. Two cups are self contained in one package; this is a perfect nutritious snack on the go (think hiking trips or picnics). It also tastes great when it's not heated. I fell in love with it. My kids loved it, too, even the one who doesn't like oatmeal :). It contains chunks of real fruit. We preferred Apple Cinnamon over Vanilla Peach. One of my kids said that theVanilla Peach tasted like Rice Krispies. Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit has no saturated fat, no trans fat, and no cholesterol and is packed with nutrition such as potassium, vitamin C, iron, calcium, and protein. Seneca Farms products are made from fresh fruits and are Kosher certified. I'd definitely recommend this product and be looking for it at our local grocery store.
It’s not groundbreaking news that breakfast provides us and our kids with the nutrition and fuel our bodies need. And we all know that eating oatmeal and other whole grains are an essential part of a healthy diet and promote overall good health. But, busy mornings and finicky kids can make it hard to find the time to make something that is both nutritious and delicious.
