On more than one occasion, if we are running late we will grab a quick bowl of dry cereal with milk. Cue the "mom guilt" setting in knowing we could be doing so much better to give my family a healthier start to the day starting with breakfast. It really is the most important meal of the day.
Big breakfasts can be time-consuming and let's face it, not everybody is a happy morning person who wants to start cooking before their first cup of coffee. Quaker makes it easy with an assortment of Oatmeal cereals, hot and cold that can be prepared in delicious and easy breakfast recipes the whole family can enjoy.
