Porridge topped with raspberries and sliced apple


  • 200g high-fibre porridge oats
  • 1 litre 1%-fat milk
  • 80ml cold water
  • 4 tablespoons low-fat natural yoghurt
  • 1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 40g frozen raspberries, thawed (fresh are also fine)


  1. Put the porridge oats into a saucepan with the milk and water. Heat, stirring constantly, until the porridge thickens. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, still stirring.


    If you or the kids cannot have dairy, make the porridge with water, or an alternative milk like soy or oat.

    Try topping with ready-prepared mango and fresh pineapple – available in most supermarkets. You could also use canned fruit, packed in natural juice.
