Are Cream of Wheat and Farina the Same Thing?

Farina is a form of milled wheat most often used to make hot cereal for breakfast. Cream of Wheat is just a brand of farina.  It is made from the germ and endosperm of the grain, which is milled to a fine granular consistency and then sifted.  Cream of WheatMalt-O-Meal, and Farina Mills are popular brand names of farina breakfast cereal.  If you talk to different people, they each have their favorite brand of cream of wheat. Give it a go and tell us which brand is your favorite!

Is Cream of Wheat Good for You?

Cream of wheat is a whole grain cereal option that is typically fortified with B vitamins, naturally contains fiber, and iron to give your kids a good start to the day.   It isn’t a balanced meal though, so when we have it for breakfast, we like to add fruit and use milk in our recipe to balance everything.  Grain+Protein+Fruit/Vegetable.

Favorite Toppings for Cream of Wheat

Cream of wheat can have so many different toppings because of its mild flavor.  Our favorites are:

  • Peaches (of course – this recipe is about the peaches!)
  • Berries
  • Nut Butter
  • Dried Fruit – apricots, cranberries
  • Spices – Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla
  • Milk, Almond Milk, Half and Half

Peaches n’ Cream…….mmmmm……….you can’t go wrong with this one.

A healthy breakfast should consist of a variety of foods.  Making sure your breakfast meal includes grains, proteins and a fruit or vegetable, will help provide a variety of nutrients and keep your kids more satiated and satisfied until lunchtime.

Cream of wheat is delicious but should not be considered whole grain because it is missing the bran. However, they do sell a whole grain version!
