WASHINGTON, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau:
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23: OATMEAL MONTH
Profile America — Wednesday, January 23rd. Many sumptuous foods get their day, or month, in the sun by way of some commemoration. But January celebrates a very basic, traditional dish. This is Oatmeal Month, recognizing the long-term favorite for its up-to-date health characteristics — low fat, no sodium, and the ability to help lower the risk of heart disease. Oatmeal also fits today's time pressures, since a bowl can be made in seconds in the microwave. And, of course, oatmeal cookies are among the nation's favorites. Oatmeal and other cereal uses of oats are a substantial part of America's breakfast food production, with annual sales of $10 billion and employing about 12,000 people. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
