There's no breakfast food more wholesome than oatmeal. It can be jazzed up to an extent with berries, nuts, sweeteners, and fats. (Many people like butter, or even cubes of cheese, in their porridge.) But bottom line, if you can't get your husband on the same page with you about the foods that are brought into the home, you probably can't get your kids to routinely eat oatmeal if they have frosted poptarts and frozen sausages as options.
Oops, I meant whole grain flour. Look just like regular pancakes but the soaking neutralizes phytic acid and other irritants in the flour, a step the box mixes skip.
