Great porridge recipes for Kids…

I firmly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, this is especially true for children. Sending them off to school fully fuelled is vital.

My favourite breakfast is porridge, super easy, quick and versatile. You can add in extras or take them away for the little fussy ones amongst you (we all know children can change their minds daily, so being able to change the toppings quickly works well).

I have put together these recipes for Wren Kitchens who believe that the kitchen is the heart of the home. They believe that this is where families experience some of their most memorable moments – it’s the ideal place for the family to gather, natter, laugh, and most importantly cook and enjoy wholesome, nutritional meals together. 

Here are my top porridge recipes to sneak in goodness to your little ones first thing.

Peanutbutter porridge

Ingredients:

75g of oats

175ml of almond milk (or other milk)

2 tbsp of peanut butter/almond butter/cashew butter

1 banana

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Method:

Begin by placing the oats, almond milk and cinnamon into a heavy based saucepan and stir. Once mixed add the runny honey and gently stir over a medium heat.

After about 5-7 minutes stir 1-2 tbsp of peanut butter through and also add 1/2 the banana, mashed.  After a few more minutes, once you have reached a consistency you like, you are ready, you might have to add a splash more milk or water if it becomes too thick.

Serve with the other half of the banana, sliced and if your kids are nut butter mad, another spoonful on top.

Pink porridge

Keeping food interesting and colourful is a great way to get kids to try new things, I love my pink porridge for that.

Ingredients:

80g of oats

300ml of almond milk (or other milk)

1/2 tea spoon beetroot powder

1 tablespoon runny honey

pinch of salt

1x punnet of raspberries

Method:

Begin by placing the oats, beetroot powder, salt, and almond milk into a heavy based saucepan and stir. Once mixed add the runny honey and gently stir over a medium heat.

After about 5-7 minutes add a few handfuls of the raspberries and mix, squishing a few to give the porridge a nice texture.

After a few more minutes, once you have reached a consistency you like, you are ready.

Serve with some extra fresh raspberries on top and a drizzle more honey.

Pear and Chocolate porridge

Ingredients

80g of oats

300ml of almond milk (or other milk)

1 large english pear – grated

1 teaspoon runny honey

cacao nibs

cacao powder (optional)

Flaked almonds (optional)

Method:

Add the oats and milk to a heavy based saucepan and stir. Once mixed add the grated pear and runny honey and gently stir over a medium heat.

If you would like to make your porridge completely chocolatey add 1 tablespoon of the cacao powder and mix together. If however you would just like to use the cacao sprinkles, leave that section out.

After about 5-7 minutes, when you have your desired consistency you are ready, serve with a drizzle of honey and some cacao nibs.

Enjoy.
