A bowl of oatmeal is a fantastic, fiber-rich breakfast for people of any age, but some kids may complain that it's too boring or tasteless. Serve up my Chocolate Oatmeal
— it's a delectable take on the original, and I bet the idea of "chocolate for breakfast" gets your kids running to the kitchen! To make, prepare half a cup of oats with 1 cup water or skim milk, according to package directions. Stir in cocoa powder, a little sugar, and a dash of vanilla extract into the prepared oatmeal, and then top with your children's favorite fruits like berries or half a sliced banana. This energy-boosting breakfast will keep them — and you — feeling full and satisfied until lunchtime.
