January’s national oatmeal month, and apples pair well with oats!

Yakima, WA – January is officially National Oatmeal Month for one main reason; Americans buy and consume more oatmeal during January than in any other month of the year. The fact that oatmeal is warm, inexpensive and nutritious helps in explaining why 80% of American households have it in their cupboards.
