MARK­ING 140 years of global her­itage, Quaker con­tin­ues to pro­mote and in­spire nu­tri­tious eat­ing, earn­ing the Health­ier Choice logo from Malaysia’s Min­istry of Health.

The Quaker Oats Com­pany, maker of Quaker Oats, the World No.1 Oats brand and Malaysia’s No.1 Hot Ce­real brand, has been com­mit­ted to nour­ish­ing fam­i­lies through the good­ness of oats since 1877.

This val­ued prom­ise of bring­ing oats to more peo­ple in more de­li­cious ways has been un­wa­ver­ing for the past 140 years and has made the brand the fore­most ex­pert and undis­puted leader in oats.

In line with that, Quaker con­tin­ues to bring the whole­some good­ness of oats to Malaysians of all ages. Just in time for the brand to cel­e­brate its global 140th an­niver­sary, two prod­ucts – Quak­ers In­stant Oat­meal and Quaker Quick Cook Oat­meal – are now marked with the Health­ier Choice logo, awarded by the Min­istry of Health to help con­sumers iden­tify food items that meet nu­tri­tional stan­dards set by the Min­istry.

Quaker Oats of­fer the good­ness of whole grains, are high in fi­bre, are a source of pro­tein and iron, and con­tain beta glu­can, which helps re­duce choles­terol

“Quaker has al­ways been syn­ony­mous with good nutri­tion and health ben­e­fits. This recog­ni­tion and award­ing of the Health­ier Choice logo only un­der­scores our on­go­ing ded­i­ca­tion to bring­ing the good­ness of oats to more Malaysians for many more years to come.

“We hope to in­spire peo­ple to be more proac­tive about their health and show that healthy food can also be con­ve­nient, de­li­cious and nour­ish­ing.

“It’s never too late to start eat­ing healthily and by mak­ing small changes, we can take pos­i­tive steps to­wards be­ing health­ier in­di­vid­u­als, for our­selves and for our loved ones,” said Pep­siCo Sin­ga­pore, Malaysia, Mon­go­lia, Brunei, Guam and Asia-Pa­cific Is­lands gen­eral man­ager Mal­iha Sub­hani.

Sim­ple, con­ve­nient and tasty, Quaker Oats now makes it even eas­ier to choose health­ier food, and en­cour­ages con­sumers to do what mat­ters by pow­er­ing their day with Quaker.

As Ra­madan ap­proaches, the brand is re­dou­bling its ef­forts to ed­u­cate and em­power Malaysians to con­sume a whole­some diet, with the help of celebrity mum Aishah Sin­clair and fit­ness ex­pert Kevin Zahri, who share de­li­cious, easy-to­fol­low recipes such as Quaker Oats Pan­cakes with Chicken and Corn, use­ful tips to fast healthily and so much more.

“I’m a busy mum who wants my fam­ily to eat healthy, nu­tri­tious food so I’m re­ally glad that I have Quaker Oats – there are so many ways my fam­ily can en­joy this whole­some food and it’s so easy to in­clude it in our daily diet,” said Aishah.

A healthy diet and ac­tive life­style go hand in hand and US-cer­ti­fied trainer Kevin Zahri added, “I’m ex­cited to part­ner with Quaker to con­tinue en­cour­ag­ing Malaysians to live and eat health­ier.

“Oats are a great op­tion for those se­ri­ous about their health be­cause it has so many health ben­e­fits. Dur­ing the month of Ra­madan, you can take a bowl of Bubur
