I had such a hard time getting my grandson to eat his oatmeal or cream of wheat. I finally shook a little colored sugar sprinkles on top and poof, the oatmeal was gone. Each time we have hot cereals, I pick a different color and just sprinkle enough to make it pretty!

Eat shredded wheat as a hot cereal, especially, maple and brown sugar flavor. All you have to do is mix a lot of the cereal with not so much milk, add sugar to your taste, then microwave it, and stir it up.

No one likes lumps in their hot cereal. We had always boiled the water first and stirred in the hot cereal, cream of wheat, malt-o-meal, grits, or corn meal mush. I've discovered you can avoid lumps if you don't boil the water first, but instead put the right amount of water in the pan then put in the right amount of cereal before turning on the heat. Stir once or twice when it starts to boil and keep stirring until done. For some reason it comes to a boil and is done faster than the conventional way. Enjoy!

Note: This does not work for oatmeal.
