What You’ll Need
  • 1 small apple
  • 1½ cups milk
  • Salt
  • ¾ cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
What to Do

1. Peel the apple and chop it into small pieces.

2. Boil the apple pieces with the milk and a dash of salt. For older kids who are fine with crunchier apple pieces, add the apple later (with the oats) to create more texture.

3. After the milk comes to a boil, add the oats along with the sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

4. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Then serve, topping with an extra sprinkling of cinnamon and apple bits, if your child likes.
