It’s commonly agreed upon that breakfast is the most important meal of the day—especially for students, who spend most of their days in school. Getting a great start to the morning doesn’t have to be a whole production, either—with cafeterias offering breakfast options, it’s easy to keep students fed.
Oatmeal is one of the easiest ways to offer students hearty, accessible morning options—endlessly customizable and versatile, oats give foodservice operators a great blank canvas to appeal to an array of tastes. Operators can look to a supplier that offers an array of oat products—such as PepsiCo’s Quaker® Snack Portfolio, which includes Quaker Oats Old Fashioned, Quaker Instant Oatmeal Packets and Chewy Bars, including Quaker® Chocolate Chunk Chewy Granola Bars.
For hot cereal offerings, try these tasty oatmeal variations:
- Blueberry Peach Oats with Quaker® Kettle Hearty® Oats—made with oats, water, skim or reduced-fat milk and flavored with honey, vanilla extract, blueberries and diced peaches, this option offers a fruity, sweet option for students.
- Peach Cobbler Oatmeal with Quaker® Kettle Hearty® Oats—this oatmeal option offers the comforting flavors of peach cobbler; topped with sliced peaches, ground cinnamon and Pearl Milling Company® Syrup!
- For an oatmeal that’s great for fall, Honey Pear Oats with Quaker® Kettle Hearty® Oats fit the bill. Mix diced pears and cinnamon into prepared oatmeal, then top with vanilla or plain low-fat yogurt.
- Finally, Berry Jubilee Topped Oats with Quaker® Kettle Hearty® Oats are a tasty option, topped with a mixture of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries in a sauce of strawberry preserves. It’s a sweet, delicious option students of all ages will love.
Keeping students satisfied with breakfast offerings is easy with Quaker® oats products. Topped with fruit for made-to-order options and available in convenient instant packets as well as in granola bar form, oats are a versatile option for school cafeterias.
