THREE BEAR PORRIDGE
Oatmeal is more economical and nutritious than any of the pre-sweetened cold cereals on the market. If it is introduced as “porridge” and if the children get to make it themselves, it just might become a favorite. If you think oatmeal is yucky and that only pink marshmallows and lots of sugar can make a cereal good, then your child will probably copy your attitude. So buy some instant oatmeal, turn on the tea kettle when you get up. Then, while you’re getting ready, your children can be stirring up their own choice of hot cereal. If you buy the unflavored variety, sprinkle with cinnamon, brown sugar or stir in your favorite jelly or fruit.
