Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal for Back to School Breakfast

Trying to change kid habits is hard. Trying to convince parents to change their kids’ habits can be even harder. I used to try to persuade parents to take this task on, but it was met with a lot of resistance. Thus, I started turning my attention to the kids. In clinic, I give kids a simple task such as finding an oatmeal recipe that contains a fruit or a veggie, make it, and if they like it and eat it, they are to send me the recipe and I will feature them on my blog – enter the yummy Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal recipe.

This is one of my favorite back-to-school oatmeal recipes put together by two cute blonde girls who used to eat cereal and refused to have fruits for breakfast: Caitlin (9yrs) and Ashley (7yrs).
