Do you eat milk with your oatmeal?
I always do and Quaker Oats wants you to as well!
Apparently, that isn’t as common in the United States as it is in other parts of the world (which, quite frankly, astounds me) and Quaker Oats wants to make that change.
“We’re really trying to change consumer habits,” says Christian Bryzinski, strategy senior manager at Quaker.
“Two of the biggest breakfast foods are oatmeal and milk, and the combination of those two together is a nutrient powerhouse,” Bryzinski says. “You get protein from the dairy side (along with essential vitamins and minerals) and then you get the whole grains and the fiber that people really need from the oatmeal, so it’s really kind of an all-in-one breakfast solution,” he adds.
