Sprinkle Colored Sugar on Hot Cereals for Kids

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!

Brown sugar and cinnamon is very good on oatmeal also.

A scoop of ice cream on hot oatmeal is also appealing to children. Then you don't have to add milk and sugar.

What, no cocoa in it? Marshmallows? Of course I remember the green food coloring on St. Patrick's day, ewww!

My mom used the little red cinnamom candies. Those were a great treat!

Try this: Black Strap Molasses is loaded with Vitamins & Minerals, or Honey... much better than granulated sugar.
