Oatmeal is a healthy, whole-grain cereal that is both delicious and extremely nutritious. Oats are high in soluble fibre, which has been proven to reduce cholesterol, fight cancer and protect against heart disease.

Quaker Oats, however, can easily be prepared using a microwave, which reduces the preparation time dramatically.
