Nutritional tips

Check the label when buying dried fruit, and avoid ones with sulphur dioxide, an additive used to preserve the colour of the fruit.


  1. Tip the oats, raisins and cinnamon into a large bowl, pour on 800ml cold water, cover and leave to soak overnight.

  2. The next day, tip the contents of the bowl into a pan and stir in the apple. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, for 5 -10 mins until the oats are cooked and the apple is soft but still has a bit of bite and texture. Reserve half for the next day and spoon the remainder into bowls. Top each portion with a spoonful of yogurt and dust with some cinnamon.
