Adventurous Days Require Healthy Starts #QuakerEpicAdventures

When my fiance had to go from California to San Antonio, Texas on business, my 3 year old partner in crime and I decided we would stowe away with him. And there our big adventure in the state of everything big began. Texas is famous for it’s BBQ, but on a day out exploring we found a hidden gem that you’d never expect to find, a drive-thru wildlife safari. A 5mph drive through a texas ranch may not sound thrilling, throw in a few wild animals and purchase a bag of animal feed and things get interesting. Especially when a friendly Zebra sticks it’s head in your car and decides he’ll help himself to the antire bag whether you like it or not. Our morning drive was full of excitement as zebras, llamas and ostriches approached our car looking for their morning breakfast. We were only to happy to oblige and what ensued was a day we will never forget.

Zebras aren’t the only ones who need a hearty breakfast. Everyone knows that there are two things that can really ruin a kids good mood – being hungry and tired. Even an epic adventure can’t turn around the sour mood an empty belly causes. So we start all of our epic adventures after a healthy breakfast. But since many of our adventures involve travel – we don’t always have time for an elaborate meal.

Especially when we’re staying in a hotel – or on days we have damsels in destress to rescue, zebras to feed and roller coasters calling our name. That’s why Quaker® Perfect Portions fits right in with our adventurous day.  It comes in a resealable pouch and just needs milk or water added so it’s even perfect for stays at a hotel. You don’t need a kitchen and the hot water from the coffee pot works just fine!

The perfect portion resealable bag allows us to make just a single bowl for Whistler, or enough oatmeal for the whole family. Unlike the single serve pouches, it means daddy’s larger belly can have all the extra oatmeal he needs. Plus, it contains no added sugar so we can determine how much sweetner to add depending on the person eating it. For instance, mommy likes just a little honey. Whistler likes sugar with a helping of fresh fruit too. You could even add peanut butter, jam or jelly, cane sugar or trivia – basically sweeten it with whatever you like in as much or as little as you want.

Every day is an adventure and with Quaker® Perfect Portions I know I am providing my family with the fuel they need for their epic adventures.

    My daughter eats oat meal every morning for breakfast…but I have never seen their perfect portions before. I’ll be on the lookout for them next time we go shopping! Thanks!

    My daily routine usually starts with Oatmeal with fruit. It is the all around healthy breakfast I think

    I eat oatmeal a lot to start my day. I love adding all different types of fruits. I think it is one of the best breakfast foods! Not only because of the taste but because of the health benefits!
