Porridge and Raspberries

I actually stole this idea from someone else. It was a tip I came across one time and if I knew who posted it, I would give proper credit - b/c I think it's a great idea.

To cool off hot porridge / hot oatmeal for children - throw in some frozen fruit. Blueberries and raspberries work best. It adds some fruity flavor while making it cool enough for a little one to eat it.

Now all that being said - my kids don't do that. Dd loves raspberries, but hates porridge, ds loves porridge but I doubt he'd want any fruit in his at all. So really I am the one that does it all the time. Not because I'm a sissy and can't eat hot porridge - but b/c I think it tastes WONDERFUL! I love raspberries any way, any time - but this makes some boring hot cereal taste better, more colorful, and if you add enough of it - you can get in some extra serving of fruit for the day.

What a great idea to add frozen fruit to hot cereal ! I love Red River cereal, but added nutrition is a plus to me...besides the fact that it actually cools the cereal down !

Thanks for commenting on my blog!

I love trying ethnic foods, but your header makes me squirm! I can't do sushi. :-)

Hello! Our small homeschool co op does a "country night" once a month. We all study one country each month, and all the kids do a project of their choice on that country and present it the evening of "country night" when we all get together and enjoy a big spread of foods we brought that we prepared from that country.
