  • But I just watched THE stupidest one, ever.

    Quaker Oats

    The mom hands her 4 kids each a bowl of oatmeal to eat in the minivan? Am I on the wrong planet?

  • Nah, I've seen that one too and it struck me as strange to treat hot oatmeal, in a bowl, as an on-the-go breakfast.

    that's better than the child I saw (with my own 2 eyes) trying to eat some instant oatmeal raw straight from the package.

    I helped the poor child heat up some water from the tap and mix it in a bowl because I hated seeing him pour the package in his mouth.

    Oh, and at least the commercial shows the mom giving the kid breakfast --- even in the van. I'm a bit peeved at the parents who send their kids to school to eat the school breakfasts.

  • I DO let my kids eat in the car... but certainly not anything you have to use UTENSILS with?!?! That's pretty silly.

    And I agree that it's so important for kids to have breakfast... every day, but especially on school days!!

    I guess I don't see too much wrong with the kids eating school breakfast if it's provided & they get there early enough to eat it.

    My kids school doesn't do breakfast.

  • I also thought this was odd. Now I wonder how many idiots are going to try that, and then try to sue Quaker when their children are burned with hot oatmeal.
