We are always on the lookout for healthy foods that the entire family can enjoy together. Make the food natural, without preservatives, and convenient it makes it even more inviting! That is why we were so interested in the new Seneca Farms Oatmeal packs!
Seneca Farms Oatmeal is a quick to prepare, portable and nutritious oatmeal that provides an excellent source of Vitamin C without trans fat or cholesterol. They come in a 2 pack of 6 oz microwaveable cups, and is ready to heat and serve without needing to add any water or milk! It only takes 45 seconds to prepare in the microwave. It comes in 4 flavors; Apple Cinnamon, Vanilla Peach, Cranberry Apple and Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal flavors and can be found nationally at a wide variety of retail grocery stores.
We tried out the Apple Cinnamon 2 pack as well as the Vanilla Peach. I was so excited about the oatmeal as Jade is quite picky and is going through a phase where the only foods she will eat on any given day are string cheese, White grape juice and oatmeal! So I knew these simple and wholesome cups would be perfect!
I was really impressed with the list of ingredients. Yes, we are one of those crazy people that have to read the ingredients on the package before we buy the product. We try to stay away from processed sugars and other processed ingredients as much as possible in the foods we eat for meals. If a product is made from all natural ingredients, it gives it a huge advantage to us purchasing again in the future. As you can see, the Apple Cinnamon flavor is full of healthy and natural ingredients, and exactly the type of label we love reading! I love that I know exactly what each of those ingredients are and that I can pronounce them too! And each flavor's ingredients are quite similar in quality!
Seeing as Jade's favorite oatmeal flavor is Apple Cinnamon that is obviously the first flavor we tried out! It was great because it was very easy to warm up, and she was quite excited as she loves her "o-me" as she calls it. To my surprise, she took one bite and said, "no" and pushed it away. I took a closer look at it, and figure she refused it for any number of reasons. She could have been tired, or just another picky eating day. It could be that it's not as sweet as typical microwave oatmeal, or because the texture is different from regular oatmeal. It seems more creamy and each individual oat is not distinguishable from the rest. But for some odd reason she wouldn't like it.
- Ease of transportation- He was able to carry it with him to the school in the early mornings and still have a healthy breakfast
- Convenient, easy storage, easy to carry, easy to heat up in the microwave, no need of water, milk etc.
- Quick to heat up as it only takes 45 seconds to heat up
- Large chunks of REAL FRUIT- the husband said it was a like eating a mix between oatmeal and a fruit cup; the fruit was so big.
- Enjoyable flavor
- Amazed him that the cup had a metal ring at the top but could still go in the microwave.
- Natural and wholesome ingredients
So to my surprise the person in the family I thought would be least impressed by the product was actually the one person who liked it the most and the one I thought would love it the most wouldn't even give it a try because of her picky nature with textures.
The husband enjoyed them so well, that we let him have the rest so he could continue to carry healthy meals to school with him. It is quite a feat to find a healthy meal that is portable that he enjoys and can take to school with him! So we're quite happy with the Seneca Farms Oatmeal!
