Back in April, Seneca Farms launched a brand new product to help make breakfast easier. Their Oatmeal & Fruit comes in its own cup and can be microwaved to perfection in 45 seconds. I was sent the two current flavors to try out- Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach. I am super picky about oatmeal. I’ve always been a finicky eater, and only started eating any type of oatmeal about two years ago. It has to be exactly the right consistency, otherwise I can’t eat it. Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit is just the right texture, and combines the oatmeal with real chunks of fruit. When heated up, it tastes more like a yummy cobbler than a meal. I particularly loved the Vanilla Peach, so delicious! If I wanted to kill the nutrition factor, I’d eat it with vanilla ice-cream. But I do have some self control, and it’s perfectly wonderful on its own. My son is even pickier than me, and oatmeal hasn’t made it to his list of approved foods yet apparently, because he wouldn’t even give it a chance (believe me, I’ve tried), but I for those with less finicky children, it’s definitely worth trying! I plan to pick up some more and eat it regularly because it’s so easy to make.

According to the 2011 Children’s Nutrition Study launched by Harris Interactive for Seneca, nearly 60 percent of children between the ages of 3 and 17 are skipping breakfast. Approximately 58 percent of moms and 57 percent of single people skip breakfast as well,  despite the fact that 71 percent of those polled admit that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit provides a tasty, fast way to make sure you and your children get something in your stomach that contains a good source of vitamin C and whole grains before heading out the door.
