During the “The Simple Joys of Mornings" event, McDonald’s introduced their new hearty Fruit & Maple Oatmeal and McCafé Caramel Mocha to their menu. Also at the event were a variety of lifestyle experts to share lifestyle tips and discuss the new products.

I met with Bevy Smith, Lifestyle Maven to hear her thoughts about how the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal can become a life sty;e choice. Bev loved that the oatmeal was filled with whole grains and had real and crispy fruit. She felt that having a healthy start to your morning routine would give you the boost you needed for the rest of the day.

Since Bev was the style maven behind the outfits the models wore that day plus one of the hosts attending the event, she knew the important of needing energy to last the whole day through.

After grabbing my bowl of Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, I sat down to talk to Cindy Goody, McDonald’s U.S. Senior Director of Nutrition, and learned more about the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal.
  • Starting January 2011 will be available any time of day. McDonald’s new Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is freshly prepared with cream, topped with diced fresh red and green apples, tangy dried cranberries, two types of sweet raisins and blended with brown sugar. Upon request, brown sugar and fruit can be put on the side.
  • Every serving has two-thirds of a day’s worth of 100 percent natural whole grain oats. Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is also rich in dietary fiber and vitamin C, providing an excellent source of these nutrients or at least 20 percent of the recommended Daily Value.2
  • Variety of nutrient-rich fruit. All forms of fruits and vegetables count towards a balanced diet! Fruit & Maple Oatmeal contains a half-cup of a variety of fresh and dried fruit.

While McCafé Caramel Mocha is now available nationwide, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal will be available across the country beginning January 3, 2011. Make sure to grab you a bowl.
