Porridge is the perfect breakfast food to set your little ones up for the day, slowly releasing energy all morning. It's quick too, taking only a few minutes in the microwave - depending on their age, your kids could even have a go at making their own. We love this fun way to serve it with a face on top and are sure your kids will too! Adding bananas makes sure there's one of their 5-a-day in there too.
- 3tbsp porridge oats
- 8tbsp full-cream milk
- 1 small banana
- About 1tsp seedless raspberry jam
You can cook the porridge in a small pan for 3-4 minutes instead of the microwave if you prefer.
- Put the oats and milk in a medium-sized bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes on Full Power until thickened. Stir well.
- Mash in the banana. Pour into serving dish and pipe a jammy smile on top (use a paper piping bag).
