We don't need to tell anybody about the healthy properties of rolled oats. The majority of children don't want even want to look at them. I'm a mum of two children, and I know that convincing children to eat porridge is not so easy.
My daughter likes porridge with tomatoes, avocado, pepper, chives and roasted sunflower seeds, whereas my son likes oat omelettes. Today I found another oat dish which my children accepted: oat budino with home-cooked strawberry confiture and almonds. The one thing I don't like about this dish is the colour of the budino. However, the taste and healthy properties make up for this tiny defect.
