Did you know that oats are superfoods that pack a punch?

Don’t belittle these little flakes as they offer more than just fibre to keep our digestive systems happy, or help keep us fuller for longer.

Research has shown that eating oats is linked to an average of 7% decrease in LDL cholesterol – yes, the bad ones. That’s good news as these heart-loving oats help maintain healthy blood sugar levels in our bodies.

While oats may seem plain and boring, they are really versatile and make convenient meals too. Quaker understands families would rather spend quality time with their kids and spouses than to sweat it out over the stove to whip up a healthy meal. Enjoy a healthy oat-some meal without fuss – this scores with busy families for sure!

Let’s find out why oats are a must-have item in these family kitchens and pick up a new recipe of two!
