No-Cook Oatmeal with Berries

No-cook oatmeal? Yes! Check out this delicious way to eat a filling breakfast with fresh fruit.

raw oatmealWe all know the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right?  Well, I never put a lot of stock into that phrase until I became a mother.

Feeding my kids a filling, wholesome breakfast makes all the difference in how they start their day. It needs to be filling and have enough protein to keep them from getting hungry halfway through the morning.

Packing fresh lunches is no longer an issue since we began using the MOMables menus, but getting my boys to eat breakfast when we are in a hurry can be challenging.  My 3 boys have differing tastes, so it’s not always easy to make everyone happy.

Having a variety of choices on hand seems to keep them a little more interested and our mornings complaint free.

With warmer days upon us, our focus has turned from hot oatmeal to a cooler, summer version.  Raw oats topped with milk, fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Easy, delicious and nutritious… the MOMables way.
