Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal


Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal is a single-serving container that you add hot water to and eat. It's easy to make, and has generally healthy ingredients.

Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal A container provides about 2 1/2 ounces of food. The base component is oatmeal, and they add in almonds, pistachios, and cherries. Note that this means the flavor will be a bit sour, from the cherries. Some people are OK with this. Others won't enjoy it. So this is definitely something you should try first before you buy a twelve pack of it. It might be perfect for you - or the flavor might not be one you enjoy.

We did like the flavor, and we liked the fresh ingredients. But, that being said, the price on Amazon is over $2 a serving, which is fairly expensive. "Regular" oatmeal can be 50 cents a packet or even less. You could easily customize that oatmeal to be exactly the way you want.

But of course, many people are so pressed for time that they only have coffee for breakfast. Or just toast. That is REALLY unhealthy. Many studies show that you should start the day with a meal of some sort, to give your body the nutrients it needs to metabolize properly until lunch. So if you're currently eating nothing at all, and a better breakfast just isn't possible with your schedule, then at least this instant-eat meal is a better solution.

Nutrition wise, again this isn't great but it's certainly better than what many people eat (or don't eat) for breakfast. 290 calories, 8g fat, 180mg sodium, and a whopping 49g of carbs. Sure, 5g of that is fiber, but a large 19g of that is sugar. That's a lot of sugar to be pouring into your mouth the first thing in the day. You also get 9g protein. In terms of vitamins, you barely get anything.

So overall I'd always suggest eating something HEALTHY for breakfast. Something with protein, nutrition, and what your body actually needs to get its muscles and blood working properly. Something with vitamin and minerals. So I do consider this a step up from many options - but I also consider it a stepping stone to help you get to a place where you eat a fresh meal, vs a sweetened, processed option.

I was provided a review set of this from the Amazon Vine program.
