This really is the BEST Oatmeal Recipe for Kids and I’m going to tell you one BIG reason why. It’s all about what your child enjoys and will eat! On Mini Chef Mondays we make sure that we learn about our food and most importantly, enjoy it too!
If your child doesn’t like oatmeal then plopping some plain old oatmeal isn’t going to entice them to eat it.
We love to create a variety of options for our mini chef. She can put in whatever she wants and then gets to enjoy the fruits of her labor, literally! When you’re making your own breakfast, you pick what you want to eat. Why shouldn’t our kiddos? Oatmeal is a healthy breakfast that we like to enjoy 2-3 times a week at least. We have several different ways to enjoy it, but this one is by far my daughter’s favorite!
Top secret tip.. if you’re kiddo doesn’t like chia seeds, hemp hearts or any other type of seed, try mixing in some sprinkles. They will gladly use up all of the sprinkles in their oatmeal. My mini chef enjoys chia seeds and hemp hearts, but really loves sprinkles too!
Another fun tip! You can use a variety of sweeteners and allow your child to choose which one they’d like. I offer maple sugar and maple syrup.
