Hi,I have 3 boys and 1 year old girl. My kids love to eat oatmeal fruit (instant package) for breakfast every day. Is too much oatmeal bad for them? Thanks.

It is important for you and your children to eat a balanced eating pattern that focuses on all of the food groups. Too much oatmeal is not bad for them (since it is a good source of whole grains), however, it is important to choose foods from all of the different food groups—especially fruits and veggies! Also, many of the instant oatmeal packets tend to contain a lot of added sugar. Therefore, a better option would be to prepare plain quick oats and then top the oatmeal with fruit and small amount of sugar. Try our Heart Warming Oatmeal w/Fruit & Nuts, it is always a family favorite!
