Apple Oatmeal

Apple Oatmeal

In the Nutrition kitchen, students have been studying the importance of eating a healthy breakfast.  Coined as the “most important meal of the day,” eating breakfast can increase a child’s focus, a child’s energy and a child’s academic success in school.  Students cut apples and helped prepare the apple oatmeal.  The meal was one of the most popular meals of the year and it only took 5 minutes to cook!  See the recipe below to enjoy apple oatmeal at home. 

Apple Oatmeal:

Makes 4 servings.
·      1 3⁄4 cups 100% apple juice
