As the weather starts to warm up, we tend to spend a lot of time outdoors and as a family. One of our favorite activities to do during the warmer months is to go hiking. Usually it is a spontaneous trip. We live within a few miles from an amazing national park and love to surprise our kids by going there. We turn it into an adventure with scavenger hunts of all kinds, my kids especially love when we create one with all the different flowers we can find while hiking.
Hiking can take a lot out of kids and adults so we need to make sure we eat a proper breakfast that will give us the energy and fuel to last while out on our hiking adventure. Our go-to breakfast for days like this is Quaker Perfect Portions!
Quaker Perfect Portions is a Multiserve instant oatmeal, which is incredibly easy to prepare. You can make as much or as little as you like and the taste is divine. There is no sweetener so you can add sugar, sugar substitute, honey, toppings or whatever you may like. We love this on its own or adding fresh berries from our garden. My kids can’t wait for the berries to grow so we can pick them and add them to our Quaker Perfect Portions.
