Back To School Fuel

It's the most important meal of the day. We all know that. But it's not always the easiest one, especially for the smallest people in the house. Kids need a nutritious, filling breakfast to start their school day, but many times, there isn't a lot of time in the morning, but with Better Oats from MOM Brands, you don't need as much time as you might think to make sure their stomachs are satisfied and they have the fuel they need to get them through the day, or at least until lunch!

Better Oats is continuing their oatmeal revolution with the addition of three new steel cut instant oatmeal varieties to the their Oat Revolution line. The new oatmeal is one of the fastest cooking steel cut oats products on the market, allowing us, the consumer, to enjoy all the taste, flavor and health benefits of steel cut oats in just 2 1/2 minutes cook time! Now that's even something my busy mornings can allow for!

Available in 3 varieties, the new Oat Revolution steel cut oats have flaxseed and carry the 100% Whole Grain Stamp from the Whole Grains Council. They are also a good source of fiber and ALA omega-3, and are considered hearth healthy.

"This innovative new oatmeal is great for busy people who want the taste and texture of slow-cook steel cut oatmeal, as well as the speed of cooking by microwave. What makes this oatmeal even more convenient is the built-in measuring cup pouch--just another way we're finding better ways to make a better breakfast." ~ Linda Fisher, Director of Corporate Communications for MOM Brands, the parent company of Better Oats. 

These new varieties are currently available at over 1,000 Kroger and Safeway stores. And they will be hitting the shelves of other retailers nationwide over the next several months. The new tasty options are: 

* Oat Revolution Steel Cut Maple & Brown Sugar: A tried and true favorite flavor with a hearty texture everyone will love. (This is my favorite!! It reminds me of the oatmeal of my childhood, but taken to the next level!)

*Oat Revolution Steel Cut Classic: Oatmeal that's perfect on its own or customize with fruit, syrup or other favorite additions. (This one made me thing of my father in law, who could enjoy his oatmeal with homemade granola added in.)

*Oat Revolution Steel Cut Apples & Cinnamon: Made with real apples and warm flavor of cinnamon. (This is the one Alex could eat every day, especially come autumn!)

If you are looking for something new to fuel your kids' day, giving them energy to start their day the right way, while filling them up and make them say "Yum", the new Steel Cut line from Better Oats is definitely the answer. Quick enough not to derail your busy morning, but nutritious and hearty enough for you to feel good about! Be sure to check your grocery store today!
