While you’re enjoying your bowl of oatmeal here are a few facts to chew on.

Oatmeal Month, was created by The Quaker Oats Company’s, January is the month we buy more oatmeal than any other month of the year. On average each January we purchase 40.5 million pounds of oats. That’s enough to make 470 million bowls.

Oats were one of the earliest cereals cultivated by man. They were known in ancient China as long ago as 7,000 B.C. The ancient Greeks were the first people known to have made a recognizable porridge from oats.

Seventy-five percent of U.S. households have oatmeal in their cupboard.

The most popular oatmeal toppings are: milk, sugar, fruit and butter/margarine.

Oatmeal cookies are the #1 non-cereal use for oatmeal, followed by meatloaf.

Here’s one more fact for you. Oatmeal is good for your heart. Studies show that eating oatmeal daily as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease.
