Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit

Did you know that:

  • Nearly 60% of U.S. parents of children ages 3-17 admit that their child skips breakfast, with more than half of U.S. Moms wishing their child ate a more nutritious breakfast.
  • 58% of U.S. Moms say they skip breakfast regularly. 46% of Moms who skip breakfast say they do so because they do not have enough time to prepare or eat it.
  • 57% of single adults say the number one reason they skip breakfast is that they don’t have enough time to prepare it.
  • While 71% of U.S. adults agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, 67% of those admit to skipping breakfast.

Those are pretty scary statistics.  I was even shocked by some of them.  That being said, my kids and I recently tried out a great nutritious breakfast that they actually liked!  Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit  (which recently launched on April 4 at Wal-Mart) is the perfect choice for anyone who has trouble finding time for breakfast in the morning.  You pop the little bowl in the microwave for 45 seconds, and breakfast is ready!  Seneca’s Oatmeal & Fruit has no trans fats or cholesterol, and is a great source of Vitamin C.   Two initial flavors are being introduced – Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach.  Madison loved these!  She loved the taste and loved the fact that they came in what she described as “a little bowl”.

Seneca Farm Oatmeal & Fruit is a product I’ll definitely be buying more of!
