Get Kids to Eat Magic Oatmeal

contest winner icon

I have taken care of over 200 kids (not all at once). Several of them had brought soda and candy bars for breakfast. I said no to that and made oatmeal. They never had oatmeal and refused to eat it.

I told them it was magic oatmeal. Before I dished the oatmeal into bowls, I put a couple of drops of food coloring in the bottom of bowl. I told them that they had to stir their oatmeal once the milk was poured. One had blue oatmeal and another red, green, and yellow. They got so excited they couldn't wait until they got their next bowl of oatmeal. They learned their colors at the same time!

Great idea. You also deserve the vote just for getting the soda and candy bars away from the children. God bless you. We need more people like you in this world.

This is so good. It sure is hard changing kids' stubborn little minds and you figured out how to do it and make them happy at the same time! A wreath of gold stars for you. With love, Susan
