Healthy breakfast idea: Your child can now eat oatmeal in the car completely mess-free

Breakfast is a very important meal for everyone especially children. A nutritious breakfast fuels kids up and gets them ready for the day.
Although making breakfast is probably the last thing on our minds when we parents are running around the house trying to get everyone ready, it is important that we stop and do it.  
In general, toddlers and kids who eat breakfast have a lot more energy, do better in school, and eat healthier throughout the day. Without breakfast, kids can get irritable, restless, and tired and probably will not do as well in school or daycare as they would have if they had simply eaten breakfast. 
Making children waffles, bacon, eggs, and orange juice is pretty much out of the question for many of us most days out of the week but there are still other choices.  One in particular is oatmeal. My children love oatmeal, and I love it because it's healthy!  
But have you ever let your child eat oatmeal in the backseat of the car on the way to school? I doubt you have especially if your children are between the ages of 2 and 5.  The mess alone would probably not be worth it for you!

Fortunately, your child can now eat oatmeal in the car completely mess free by pouring the oatmeal into a reusable food pouch such as the Little Hands Reusable Food Pouch.
The reusable food pouches are awesome because you can fill them with what ever pureed food you wish.  Since the food pouches should not be microwaved themselves, you simply cook the oatmeal like you normally would.  Once the oatmeal is done, pour the oatmeal into the reusable food pouch and give it to your child.  Your child will then be able to eat the oatmeal from the spout on the side of the pouch which will prevent them from making a mess while eating.
