I love oatmeal in the mornings, but sometimes I dont seem to have time to wait for the water to boil in the kettle, so I end up grabbing something else while on the go. I know that there are so many benefits to eating oatmeal, but if I could find a way to eat my oatmeal in a more on the go way, I would. Well I found the perfect oatmeal for me. It is already premixed and all I have to do is put it in the microwave for 45 seconds. There is even fruit already in it, so I dont have to take the extra time to cut some fruit up and put it in my oatmeal!!
Just launched in April, it is the perfect choice for anyone who has trouble finding time for breakfast in the morning. In less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee, heat the six-ounce microwaveable cup – no milk or water necessary – in the microwave for 45 seconds. Seneca’s Oatmeal & Fruit has no trans fats or cholesterol, and is a great source of Vitamin C.
Currently available in Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach, Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit can be found nationally at Walmart and at a wide variety of retail grocery stores. For a detailed store list, visit www.seneca-farms.com. Seneca Farms plans to expand its flavors later this year with Oatmeal & Fruit Cranberry Apple, andOatmeal – Maple & Brown Sugar.

It’s not groundbreaking news that breakfast provides us and our kids with the nutrition and fuel our bodies need.
