Lowan Toy Story Oats
My kids absolutely LOVE Lowan Toy Story Oats. Absolutely love it.
The whole grain Strawberry Oats is proudly presented in a bright purple Buzz Lightyear Box. The whole grain Honey Oats comes in a happy yellow Woody Box. With each box containing 8 sachets.
It’s tasty, healthy and so quick to make. There are no negatives to this product that I can find. I actually approached Lowan and asked whether we could get together to give away some to AllThingsMomSydney readers – that is how much I like this product.
We have three sets of Lowan Toy Story Oats to give away!
Lowan Toy Story Oats has made our mornings a whole lot easier.
Having the two brightly coloured Toy Story boxes in the cupboard means that I have something to give to the kids that will keep them warm in winter, full for their day’s activities (until Morning Tea) and its something they actually want to eat.
This has eliminated three problems for me which were making mornings harder than they needed to be:
- spending ages trying to convince my 5 year old to eat something in the morning (a massive waste of time and really frustrating);
- making a variety of options available to my 2 year old and 5 year old so I can find something they both want to eat; and
- plying them with heaps of different types of food in the morning to make sure they are full enough because they are busy, active kids.
What makes Lowan Toy Story Oats so Cool?
As I’ve said, having Lowan Toy Story Oats available has made my mornings much easier. I’ve just started working and if I was to go through the rigmarole of making forty thousand different types of breakfast available I would never get to work before 10am.
But beyond that, it’s not something random that is just filling them up – its actually good, wholesome food.
Making Lowan’s Toy Story Oats is also so easy. You can make it in about two minutes either on the stove top or in the microwave. And, you don’t need to dirty three dishes to make it.
Not only is quick to make but I love the taste and it’s not filled with rubbish additives, artificial colours or preservatives.
Lowan Toy Story Oats also has a 4.5 Health Star Rating.
There are two flavours to choose from – Honey or Strawberry. I have both at home because I like both, the kids like both and alternate between the two.
The oats box comes decorated with Buzz or Woody from Toy Story, depending on the flavour you choose and has pictures all over the back that you can cut out and make art with. The only issue here is if you have more than one child, you may find them fighting over the cut-out characters.
What is in Lowan Toy Story Oats
Both flavours of Oats are made from over 70% of whole grain rolled oats.
In the honey Oats 4% of the ingredients are honey powder and in the Strawberry flavour 4% is strawberry fruit pieces. The rest is milk powder, natural flavour and some sugar. In the Strawberry flavour there is also pectin, wheat fibre and food acid.
One serve of Lowan Toy Story Oats contributes 46% towards the Grains and Legumes Nutrition Council 48g whole grain Daily Target Intake.
Both the Honey and the Strawberry Oats contain gluten and milk.
But how does it taste
The short answer. It tastes really really good.
I can speak to this myself because on the odd morning when I’ve wanted something warm and tasty, I’ve tucked into the kids’ oats. I’ve been caught a few times but then I just pretend I’ve made it for them 🙂
What I really don’t like about a lot of healthy foods is that you can’t stomach eating them for extended periods because they’re not as tasty as the unhealthy alternatives.
Thankfully, Lowan Toy Story Oats is delicious.
How to Cook
All you have to do is empty the contents of the sachet and add water or milk. Bring to the boil on the stove and let simmer for 40 seconds or cook in the microwave for 90 seconds.
You don’t need any measuring cups or specific fancy baking instruments to get this perfect. The sachet is all you need because you fill it up with water to a designated mark on the sachet.
