I have a friend who hates oatmeal. It reminds her of the times she was ill as a child. For her the taste is okay BUT the texture, detestable. She describes it as someone else’s regurgitated mess. Now that she is her own person no one can make her eat it unless she wants to.

Apparently, oatmeal was her family’s “chicken soup”. If someone’s sick, feed him or her oatmeal, and that’s why she’s has grown to despise it.

Weird, right? Oatmeal is healthy but I don’t think it’s up there with hot broth and fresh fruit juices. But oh well, we all have our own quirks in the family, don’t we?

When I had my first sip of Quaker’s Good Start Oat Dairy Drink, I remembered her. I thought to myself, “She would love this.” Even though it has a strong oat-y taste, it doesn’t have the texture. It’s silky, sweet, light, and purely liquid.

Good Start comes in two flavors: Banana Crème and Vanilla Malt. It promises all the goodness of oats plus calcium in the form of a convenient breakfast drink. According to its TV ad, one bottle contains more fiber than a bowl of oats. Nice! Healthy and delicious.

Just out of curiosity, I had a little experiment.  For breakfast, I had nothing but one bottle of Good Start to test if it was enough to tide my energy over until lunchtime time Sad to say, it wasn’t. I was slightly weak and extremely hungry when 12nn came.

But that’s, alright. Quaker’s Good Start is still a good way to start the day. If you’re like me, pair it with a sandwich and you’ll be fine.

Banana Crème — the flavor that I believe minions will go gaga for — contains 139 calories while Vanilla Malt has 136. At  P28 per bottle*, it’s not bad. Good Start is a low-fat, low-calorie breakfast you can grab even if you’re in the midst of a crazier-than-usual morning rush.
