My first daughter was over two before I figured out one of our now-regular breakfast choices: instant Quaker oatmeal! I made it thicker than normal when my kids were toddlers so it’d stay on their toddler spoons. Depending on your family’s tastes, you could also use the lower-sugar packets, or if making enough for two, mix one flavored packet with a plain packet.
For a while there, we were going through enough oatmeal to buy it at Sam’s Club. We’d experiment with all the flavors, but today we’re down to old tried-and-true maple and brown sugar.
To cool it off quickly, and add a nutritional boost, we add frozen blueberries. We always make it with milk instead of water for the extra calcium, too.
