Working Mother Magazine Mom Editors share their tips on how to stay active, mealtime, and including your kids in on all the fun. Get Working Mother (1-year automatic renewal).

These simple tips are a great way to start moving toward a healthier you and also a way to get youngsters involved. I particularly love the tip about oatmeal, since I grew up eating lots of this stuff for breakfast. How could I not like it? Though, my Mom never prepared the instant, I used instant a lot in my own household (for myself). I love the small packages because they are portioned out already and I don't have to measure or worry about exceeding 1 serving. These days I would opt for a refrigerated version after reading the recipe suggestion shared by a Fitness Blogger in Health Magazine. Check out these Working Mother Mom Editors and then print out this recipe and try it in your household. It's a great way to get that live acidophilus into your system, from yogurt and just an overall cool alternative to traditional oatmeal preparation.

I love the fact that she used Mason Jars to store the Refrigerated Oatmeal because my Grandmother would use them to make fig preserves all the time, when I was a little girl.
