TWO MINUTE OATS


   
Our children love eating porridge for breakfast, so making these mixes up in wide-mouth jars (or storing in Tupperware with the 1/3 cup measuring cup for easy preparation) means they can prepare a quick, nutritious breakfast by themselves before the rush to school. Homemade dehydrated fruit makes them extra tasty. Avoid plastic packaging of commercial single-serve porridge packets and save money by making your own!
