Quaker Oatmeal with Raisin and Dried Cranberry

Recently a friend told me to make oatmeal breakfast or lunch for Mishu when I told her Mishu is on diet under her doctor instruction.She told me consume oatmeal in daily basic will not only make her lost weight but she will have a healthy diet from the benefit of oatmeal.She herself has been eating oatmeal for month and lost a good amount of weight and have healthy mind and body.Oatmeal have plenty of nutrition benefit.Daily consumption of a bowl of oatmeal can lower blood cholesterol and may help reduce high blood pressure, due to its soluble fiber content. Well, as for Mishu she not really keen when I present her a bowl of oatmeal for her for breakfast.I think maybe she don't like the bland taste,so I added some dried cranberry and raisin plus some milk to make the oatmeal more tasteful and approachable.At last she try few spoon and but still she need to eat more healthy food like cereal or oatmeal then pasta,bread and rice which make her gained insignificant weight.

1 cup oatmeal,soak for 20-30 minutes (oatmeal have smoother texture)
3 cup water
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup dried cranberry
1/4 raisin
2 tbsp honey


1:Heat water in medium stock pot at high heat.When water rolling boil add in soaked oatmeal,cook for 15-20 minutes.Reduce heat to medium.
2:Add in raisin,milk,dried cranberry and honey.Use spatula to mix ingredients until well combined.
3:Remove from heat and serve warm as breakfast or snack.

Maybe you should put some maple syrup on top of the oatmeal for Mishu.I hate oatmeal but I can eat it if with maple syrup.Same for my boy too.Hope this helps.

Personally, I like my oatmeal warm with milk n sugar. But u can also add some Milo or chocolate powder to make it more chocolaty,thus maybe more attractive to Mishu. All kids love chocolate. Good luck!!

This is definitely healthy! My dad add sweeten soy milk in his oatmeal, maybe you can try that. As for me, I cannot stomach oatmeal. I only use it in bakes.

Does Mishu like the consistency thinner or thicker? Coz I only like to eat oatmeal if the consistency is thick. You can also add canned pears, some brown sugar, sliver almonds. Good luck.
