  • It is low in saturated fat and cholesterol. It is high in fiber. And it is great when you are trying to increase breast milk.

  • It's good for you because of the fiber, it's low in fat, 0% cholesterol, sodium free, and it's a low glycemic food in that it doesn't spike your insulin like most cereals, breads and other breakfast foods.

  • It helps you go to the bathroom ;-). I have been taking extra Iron, so I try to throw in an oatmeal or oats breakfast a few times a week. My son loves oatmeal, but of course I have to add sugar and butter.

  • Steel cut oats are the ones you want to buy, not quick oats. But to answer your question that have a ton of health benefits.
