Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It perks you up and gives you energy needed for the whole morning.
Breakfast needs to be cook fast as Gor Gor needs to wake up at 5.30am and the school bus will pick him up at 6.10am. It should be easy to made, nutritious and able to last him the whole morning. As Gor Gor is a picky eater, it has to be tasty too!
To make it enticing to the kids, I have to come up with catchy names for the boys.
Introducing the power punch porridge, “power” which gives lots of energy to last you the whole morning, “punch”which is tasty that will perk you up! Gor Gor said it makes him feel powerful!
Blueberries and Cranberries
Pour one cup of oats into a pot together with four cups of milk or soya milk.
Stir gently over medium heat until it starts to bubble.
Turn down the heat slightly and simmer for about five minutes. Keep on stirring.
Add a pinch of sugar to taste (if needed) and stir well. We use honey instead of sugar.
When cooked, placed the toppings on top.
You can serve with any of the suggested toppings below:
Cut or mashed banana
Chopped mixed fruit
Strawberries or berries
Chopped nuts and cinnamon
Any other toppings that you or your kids love.
Another alternative way to cook:
Instead of using a pan or pot to cook, you can also use the microwave.
Use 1 portion oats to 4 portions of water, then microwave for about 3 minutes.
How do you measure the amount of water to use, for one person, using a measuring cup, allow 1/4 or 1/3 cup of oats. Depending on the number of people you are cooking for, just add 4 times the amount of water.
