Ingredients

50g of porridge oats
200ml of apple juice (with no added sugar)
100ml of semi-skimmed milk
1 medium dessert apple, diced
1 pinch of cinnamon
This is a warm and comforting porridge spiced up with the classic flavours of a homemade apple pie.
Throw all the ingredients into a saucepan. Heat and stir until boiling, then lower the heat and simmer gently for five minutes, stirring often. Spoon the porridge into a serving bowl and add a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Or you could try

  • muesli, fresh fruit and low-fat yoghurt – fruit added to your muesli counts towards your 5 A DAY. Low-fat yoghurt provides calcium and protein, and is low in fat, but watch out for the sugar content. Go for muesli with no added sugar.
  • porridge with mashed banana and dried blueberries – put oats and a handful of dried blueberries in a bowl and add semi-skimmed milk. Heat in the microwave for 3-4 minutes, stirring every so often. When cooked, stir in the mashed banana. The mashed banana is a healthier substitute for sugar or honey. For best results, use a very ripe banana.
  • baked beans on wholemeal toast – not only are they naturally low in fat, baked beans are also packed with fibre and protein, making them a vegetarian source of protein. Look out for reduced salt and sugar ranges.
  • breakfast cereals – cereal can be high in sugar, with some containing up to 37% of the white stuff. Try switching to lower-sugar cereals or those with no added sugar, such as plain wholewheat cereal biscuits, plain shredded wholegrain pillows, or plain porridge.
