Quaker Oatso Simple Golden Syrup
Advantages: quick, easy, tasty, mess free
Disadvantages: more expensive than a large box of porridge oats
I have recently discovered this porridge and think its just about the best thing since sliced bread. It is quick, convenient, non messy and filling and simply enough for kids over about 8 to make themselves of a morning.
There are several different flavours, some of which include fruit but the golden syrup is the most popular in my house. You get 10 sachets in the pack and you know that it is quality as its made by Quaker Oats a well trusted brand.
The main ingredient at 76% is wholegrain rolled oats and it only contains 3% of an adults recommended salt in take and 9% of an adults sugar intake.
The mainly blue and yellow box has a large Quaker Oats sign on the front and mentions that this is a natural way to lower cholesterol.
One of the reasons I think this is the best thing since sliced bread is the fact that it comes in individual sealed packages. This is important because if you have kids like mine who never close packages up properly there is always the worry of something getting in there or the product reacting to the air. The other reason and this is my favourite, you don't have to get out a measuring jug and faff around measuring and pouring, you simply empty the sachet into the bowl and then fill the empty packet with milk and add it to the bowl and stir. Anything that saves washing up is ok in my book.
Then all you need to do is microwave it on full power for 2 and a half minutes and breakfast is ready. Word of warning though, make sure there is plenty of room in the bowl as the first time we made it using a shallow bowl the microwave turntable was covered in porridge as it rises up during cooking.
As the porridge cooks you can smell the delicious mix of oats and golden syrup and when cooked the dish looks very appetizing. It tastes thick, creamy and delicious.
This is a fast and easy breakfast especially in the winter months and clean up is a breeze, just the bowl you cooked it in as the packet which you poured the milk into goes straight into the bin.
It is a good bowl full rather than a skimpy amount and would certainly stave off hunger pangs until lunchtime.

The kids love it
No need to add sugar
Individual sealed packets
Often on offer
Consistency is always thick and creamy (with porridge oats I seem to get a different consistency every time)

More expensive than a box of porridge oats
I would recommend this as a healthy, quick breakfast which will keep adults and kids full up to lunch time - tasty too. I have even been known to have this for dinner if I'm home late from work and want something quick, hot and filling.
These packs are usually priced at around £1.59.
Summary: Brilliant way to eat healthily and still get out to work\school in time
