My family and I are on the go. School, friends, activities and more keep us busy and constantly looking for healthy options. I am not afraid to say that I rely on packaged foods on the really crazy days!
So I love when products like Quaker Oats comes out with amazing foods that are healthy too but aimed at quick get and convenience.
Like Quaker’s new Perfect Portions Oatmeal packs! I LOVE these! First of all, Quaker Oatmeal is just good, right? With classic flavors like Maple and Cinnamon, you just can not go wrong. My favorite for years has been the Maple with bananas in it! My kids like the Cinnamon with peaches too!
But really, I don’t have the patience for little packets and those huge containers drive me nuts! So the new resealable, perfect portions packs are awesome! I just pour the serving I want – 1/4 cup for the kids, a half for me, add milk or water and wala, the perfect serving for a fast, healthier breakfast!
Check out the ‘Cooking and Recipes‘ section of the Quaker Website for great oatmeal ideas!
But more than easy and delicious breakfasts, Quaker has an entire line of oatmeal inspired products that are great for families!
At only 180 calories, the NEW BIG Chewy Granola Bars are a huge hit with me! I love the regular ones, don’t get me wrong, but I always feel like I want another one a little while later. These are the perfect size for a snack for me. In fact, if you have a tween or growing teenager, these are awesome for those school lunches or after school snacks!
But my absolute new favorite item from the expanding line of Quaker is the Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies! My goodness these are good! With 10 grams of Whole Grains per serving, these packs of 4 are the perfect sweet tooth satisfaction!
With 7 packs in a box at only 170 calories in a pack, I feel good about letting my kids split a pack or choosing these for myself when I have a craving! Plus, they are just darned GOOD!
Next time you are at the store, check the shelves for Quaker products as a healthier alternative for your family! I bet you will love them too!
