Seneca Farms Fruit & Oatmeal (Review & Giveaway)

Have you ever experienced life with a picky toddler? I am living that life at this very moment, and meal times have become the hardest times of day to deal with and digest! My son, 18 months old, often flat out refuses to eat. Even go to items like apple slices, mac and cheese and chicken nuggets have been getting the cold shoulder from him lately, and breakfast- forget it! I don't even want to talk about breakfast time tantrums. I usually end up frustrated, and feeling like a failure before breakfast time is over.

Seneca Farms Oatmeal & Fruit in Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach

I was recently chosen to participate in a review campaign for Seneca Farms. They have a brand new line of microwave ready fruit and oatmeal cups, and sent me two flavors to try: Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach. I liked the colorful packaging right off the bat- made me hungry when I saw it! I decided that breakfast would be the perfect time to try these yummy and convenient new Oatmeal & Fruit Cups from Seneca Farms. Balian tends to be pretty good about eating fruits, and he enjoyed oatmeal as a baby (now it's sort of hit or miss), so I figured it was worth a try!

 Oatmeal & Fruit right out of the microwave...

There was very little preparation involved here. I wanted to try the Vanilla Peach flavor first, so I removed one of the microwavable cups from the 2-pack packaging, and simply followed the instructions, which told me to  peel back the plastic cover, leaving it vented, and then pop it into the microwave for about 45 seconds. So, that's what I did. Actually, because all microwave ovens are different, I heated it for 30 seconds, stirred it, and then added 15 seconds more. When the timer went off, I carefully removed the oatmeal cup from my microwave (because it was quite warm... not hot, hot, though), and proceeded to spoon it into one of Balian's favorite bowls. There would be a much better chance of him actually eating from a familiar serving bowl.

Looks pretty good! Vanilla Peach flavor, waiting for a taste test!

I loved the way the Oatmeal & Fruit looked in the bowl! The peach pieces were diced chunks of real peach, and they looked so delicious! The oatmeal itself looked nice and hearty- not too thick, and definitely not runny, which is just the way I like it. I could smell the hints of vanilla wafting as I carried the bowl to the dining table. I presented Balian with a cooled spoonful of the Vanilla Peach Oatmeal & Fruit, and waited to see what he would do. He picked up the spoon, and closely examined the oatmeal. He sniffed it, and then very bravely decided to lick the spoon. The moment of truth had arrived... Balian smiled, looked at me and said, 'Mmm... GOOD!' and then asked for more! Thank you, Seneca Farms! I was totally shocked, but happily gave him more oatmeal until he decided his tummy was full, and then I happily ate the rest of it!

 Hmm... what is this sticky, fruity stuff?

 Success! We have a happy boy, here!

I really enjoyed the taste of the oatmeal. All of the flavors- from the oats, the peach and the vanilla blended very nicely. The oatmeal is a little sweet, but there's definitely no sugar shock, here. It's just a natural-tasting sweetness, which moms will be super happy about! The Cinnamon Apple flavored Oatmeal & Fruit is also incredibly delicious! This is a healthy, hearty breakfast that everyone in the family will love!

I truly love the convenience of these Oatmeal & Fruit Cups from Seneca Farms. There's no mixing water or milk in, and it comes out beautifully each and every time, right from the microwave. It's in a handy little cup, which you can take with you on the go. If you don't get to have breakfast before you get to work, just take an Oatmeal & Fruit Cup with you and fix it in the break room! I'd definitely stash a few of these in my office or desk drawer for emergencies- or, they'd make a great, healthy snack!
