Not surprising to me, but did you know that *71 % of U.S. adults agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but 67% of those adults admit to skipping breakfast? I’m not surprised because I’m one of those adults that will skip breakfast from time to time. My kids on the other hand do not skip breakfast and it’s a concern of mine to make sure that I’m feeding them something that is healthy and keeps them full until snack time.
What is surprising to me is 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. I had no idea that kids that young skipped breakfast. I also had no idea that 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. And that 57% of single adults say the number one reason they skip breakfast is that they don’t have enough time to prepare it.
Seneca Farms Oatmeal has a simple solution to our time crunch and desire for a wholesome breakfast. In just 45 seconds the oatmeal is ready to be served and comes in some really great fruit flavors. I just had the opportunity to review to great flavors with Zoe and Miles. I just tried Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach. My favorite being Apple Cinnamon, but Zoe and Miles seemed to enjoy both flavors equally. I loved how there were real pieces of fruit in each package of oatmeal. With the promise of more flavors in the coming months there will be plenty to choose from. Seneca’s Oatmeal & Fruit has no trans fats or cholesterol, and is a great source of Vitamin C. Oh and did I mention it’s yummy. Yeah, the kids liked it but so did I.
