What to Put Flax Meal on for 4 Year Old and 11 Year Old?

Since hearing how incredibly wonderful flax is for you, I bought some tonight for the family. My problem is that my kids (especially the 4 year old) are turning their noses up to it. I know I can convince my 11 year old to taste it but I'd like to try to conceal it a bit with my younger one.
I tried to hide it under her preservatives tonight but then she said that she didn't like her toast. *sigh*
So, what should I do with it? I thought about mixing it with her yogurt but right now she's eating those horizon yogurt tubes so that won't work. She eats cereal every morning, should I sprinkle it in her cereal?
Help! Lol.

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

Oh, and she's on a restricted diet right now. No citrus, no peanuts, no milk. Thanks guys! Great ideas! I ended up today pouring her yogurt tube out onto her plate and mixed it in. She's in there right now eating away without a care (or know) in the world! :)

I also put it in oatmeal and anything I bake...pancakes, waffles, cookies, muffins, bread...etc. I've tried it in smoothies too...and I don't know why I don't do it more often...it was good :). If she can't do peanuts...could you put some in almond butter? I made hummus tonight and I can see putting some in that. Good luck - it is good stuff :)

I sprinkle the ground flax seeds it in our oatmeal. Then top it with fresh fruit and a little bit of brown sugar. You can also bake with it.

I blend it up with smoothies. You can make smoothies with soy yogurt and/or soy milk/rice milk/almond milk/coconut milk/etc...

You can put it in oatmeal. I add it to the batter when I make muffins.

If it is the seeds grind them up first - whole seeds are difficult to digest, second I add to smoothies and marinara sauce - smoothies is easy and can be daily.

Smoothie can be done with no milk.

Try mixing it with peanut butter. Peanut butter is strong and usually will override the taste.
