Mornflake

A quick look at this option for kick-starting your morning

If you’re looking for something to give you a good start to the day then Mornflake’s new Go porridge range might be worth considering.

The porridge is available in either a sachet or in a pot. All you need to do is add hot water or mix it with milk and then heat. It’s simply made with rolled oats, skimmed milk and, interestingly, from 15% soya protein.

So why soya protein?

“It’s important to get more protection from healthy food sources – limiting sources high in saturated fat, such as red meat and full fat dairy and switching to low saturated fat alternatives, such as soya and wholegrains,” says Richard Jones of Mornflake. “This makes our porridge the perfect solution…”

Outdoor Fitness’s Staff Writer, Will Renwick tested out the porridge for a month. His verdict: “Despite the small amount of porridge in each pack or pot, each helping certainly filled me enough and gave me energy that lasted throughout the morning. The little sachets were particularly useful – I even took them backpacking with me a couple of times. The chocolate flavour one might be a little too sweet for some though.”

You can pick this porridge up from Sainsbury’s or from the Mornflake website HERE.
