Every once in a while I get to do a product review for BzzAgent (cool site - you should check it out), and I'm always more excited when I get to review something that my little people will like. When I got the box of Quaker Steel Cut Quick 3-Minute Oatmeal Milo and I were both ready to try it. I talked it up the rest of the day and we made a plan to sample it for breakfast the next morning. Milo has been loving oatmeal during the cold weather, but I usually make it on the stove and it takes a few minutes (nothing major, though), so I was ready for something microwave-friendly.
I gave Milo and Lucy both their own bowls the next morning, and the oatmeal was a hit, although if you buy this, don't add the full amount of water listed on the package - we had a soup situation that had to be regulated before I could give it to either of them. When we got everything worked out, though, they both really liked it. In fact, Lucy, who has become a little on the breakfast-picky side, ate her entire bowl. I call that a huge win. Plus oatmeal is so fabulously filling that we were all satisfied for the rest of the morning.
So, all that to say, I think you should try it. The texture is a little heartier than the regular instant oatmeal and doesn't get as mushy, which is the main difference I noticed. Other than that, the taste was just plain wonderful (we ended up with the brown sugar and cinnamon - yummy). If you're super interested, let me know and I'll give you a coupon, because I love to share.
