In April Seneca Farms launched a wonderful new product to make breakfast easier and more convenient. Their Oatmeal & Fruit comes in microwaveable cups that can be heated in 45 seconds, leaving room for more time at the table with your family or at least the ability to have breakfast before running out the door. Having a teenager who likes to run late in the morning for school and a toddler who thinks food magically appears at the table when he says “Time to eat”, this breakfast seemed like a wonderful miracle.
I was sent both flavors to try, Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach. I must admit that in the beginning I was just thinking it would taste like regular Oatmeal with a little fruit tossed in, nothing special. Then I ate it. Then it was really hard not to eat all four cups myself and horde them away from my children. I rarely ever get the desire to sneak around with food, but at the moment I was eating the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal & Fruit cup I felt as though I should be hiding in the corner of the kitchen, peeking out to make sure no one was watching. It was so good. In fact, the Apple Cinnamon tastes exactly like a hot apple pie and I had the urge to scoop ice-cream on top of it’s warm goodness and eat it ala mode. Unfortunately at this point my toddler spied me eating something and of course wanted a bite, so I had to share. Then he ate it all.
The Vanilla Peach was just as good and instead of boring oatmeal it tasted like peaches with vanilla whip. It was hard to believe they are actually good for you, but the Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit cups are a great source of Vitamin C, contain no trans fat or cholesterol! When nearly 60% of children between the ages of 3-17 and 58% of U.S. Moms skip breakfast due to time constraints, this is the perfect breakfast.
Seneca Farms plans to expand its flavors later this year with Oatmeal & Fruit Cranberry Apple, and Oatmeal – Maple & Brown Sugar. I can only imagine how great these will be. I am already addicted to the Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal & Fruit cups! These are more than just a wonderful breakfast, they make delicious healthy snacks too! You will enjoy them just as I have and quite possibly figure out a way to hide a few for yourself.
