Quaker and The Kroger Co. Family of Stores are donating $25K to Feeding America through its Tweet for a Cause initiative (@Quaker + #BetterTogether) which encourages families to spend quality time together and make things, Better Together.
As you know we love family time and spending time with our children. I also love to prepare recipes and cook at home. Quaker Oatmeal + it’s best friend - Milk provide a good source of protein for my family. This is a great way to start off your day!
I personally love partnering Oatmeal + Milk because it = A Winning Combination filled with delicious and nutritious benefits! I always make my oatmeal with low fat milk instead of water! It is a great way to provide a good source of protein which is a great way to start your day! You will not only get calcium from both, but also fiber and iron from the oatmeal and protein, potassium and vitamins D, A and B12 from milk!
I am sharing these yummy and nutritious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies with you. They are actually nutritious enough to serve for Breakfast!
