Making the Perfect Oatmeal

The convenience of Quaker® Perfect Portions is perfect for busy families.

And, with no sugar added, you can tailor the sweetness to your specific tastes. Quaker® Perfect Portions is the foolproof breakfast companion allowing you to customize the serving size and adjust the sweetness to create a dish for everyone in the family. It is easy to measure out ¼ cup or a ½ cup of oats, add water, and pop it in the microwave.

With the Cinnamon flavor, I often chop up some apples to add on top, creating my own healthy and nutritious "apple pie" to start off my day with the power of Quaker®. With the Maple flavor, chopped nuts (walnuts and almonds are my favorite) are a nice addition. Perhaps some raisins, dried cranberries, or shredded coconut. Keith likes his oatmeal more simple, with just a little honey added for extra sweetness.

I don't feel guilty about eating this multi-serve instant oatmeal since the soluble fiber in Quaker® Oats can help reduce cholesterol as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. (3g of soluble fiber daily from oatmeal, in a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats provides 2g per serving.)

My husband and I both work full time jobs, but have different schedules. I am out the door at least 2 hours before he even wakes up. Rarely do we get a chance to eat breakfast together during the week. That is why I was excited to try new Quaker® Perfect Portions. Available in Maple and Cinnamon flavors, I can make as little or as much instant oatmeal as I want, leaving the rest for Keith to have when he gets up. The convenience of Quaker® Perfect Portions is perfect for busy families.
