To the Grown-ups: If this were a science experiment, you would be exploring how heat and water transform dry oatmeal. It is also interesting to watch how the sugar melts on top of the hot cereal. But the best thing about this recipe is that it tastes delicious.

2 shakes salt
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
A pinch (shake) of cinnamon
A small handful of raisins
A small handful of toasted sunflower seeds
2 to 3 teaspoons brown sugar
milk (optional)
Tools:  1 cup measure, salt shaker, 1/2 cup measure, cinnamon shaker, skillet (preferably electric), long-handled spoon, timer, teaspoon, bowls and spoons for eating!

We asked the kids at the preschool why they thought Goldilocks ate that porridge all up. We told them that we had the actual recipe, straight from Baby Bear, then we all got busy and found out for ourselves why Goldilocks licked that bowl clean!

Cooking Hints and Safety Tips:
  • Your young cook will be stirring the oatmeal over the heat. Be sure to use a long-handled wooden spoon. Stay beside the pan during the entire cooking process. Remind younger children not to touch the pan and to stir slowly.

  • Let the oatmeal cool down before your child eats it All Up.
