Kicking off our National Porridge Week recipe series is children’s feeding expert, Louise Lennox. Louise has shared a gorgeous Creamy Maple Syrup Porridge with Fruit Kebabs recipe with us as well as some tips and tricks on how to create a fuss free breakfast routine at home. Here is why Louise is taking the #PorridgePledge this week: ‘I love my porridge with a creamy almost velvet texture. The secret to getting super creamy porridge is to cook it in a saucepan on a low heat and to keep stirring it. My favourite flavour to add in is maple syrup. Team the porridge up with healthy fresh fruit kebabs; they are packed with lots of vitamins, easy to make and a fun way to encourage children to eat fruit. As a mother of two children it gives my whole family a boost of energy to start our day.’ #FlahavansPorridgePledge #NationalPorridgeWeek #FlahavansOats #IrelandsOatExperts
