When I was asked to write a sponsored post on behalf of Quaker talking about their awesome breakfast line, I was thrilled to jump on board. Like many, I grew up on Quaker Oatmeal. Thinking about it now with some maple and a little brown sugar gives me a warming feeling!
And now being the mother to 2 sets of twins I sometimes feel like I am always in the kitchen. Four kids can eat a LOT of food. Because of this I look for meals that I can create quickly. And I look for foods that are filling. Otherwise, my kids will be hungry again in an hour. We know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Having a nutritious, filling breakfast is essential to making it through the day with energy. Quaker Oatmeal (yes, the same great oatmeal we ate as a kid), gives kids nourishment and fuel to make it through summer. Playing, running, jumping, and swimming use up a lot of energy. Good foods like oatmeal help that.
And of course once school starts in a couple of weeks they will need a nutritious breakfast for brain power to make it through the day.
Quaker Oatmeal is no longer just the plain bowl of oats that you might remember from when you were little. Using oats Quaker has created a whole line of innovative and yummy breakfast products that fuel our families for all the physical activity brought on by summer and beyond. The huge tub of old fashioned oats does still exist. It is joined by single serve packages, the Perfect Portions Multiserve Instant Oatmeal, Soft Baked Bars in yummy flavors like Cinnamon Pecan Bread and Banana Nut Bread, and much, much more.
Quaker has even teamed up with the MLS to show that oatmeal fuels the Fire. The Chicago Fire that is… 🙂 The Quaker Invitational is August 9-11 in Chicago. It will bring together hundreds of Chicago Fire Juniors teams from all over the US for a weekend of soccer and fun.
I’m on my way to have some Quaker Oatmeal right now with some butter and fruit. What are some of your favorite ways to have your Quaker oatmeal? Check out the Quaker Oats website for the whole list of products and even some recipes. Ok, now I am thinking about oatmeal cookies. Mmmmm….
