#HealthyKidsfor£20 - Week Two (Thursday Recipes)
Porridge and Banana
This filling breakfast dish is nutrient packed and will power you through the day!
• 40g porridge oats
• 150ml milk (more or less to make the consistency you enjoy)
• Optional toppings- 1 banana or 1 tsp peanut butter, other fruits or nuts, golden syrup.
Place 40g of porridge oats in a microwaveable bowl and stir in 150ml milk. Cook in the microwave uncovered for 2 minutes (Wattage E/900W), 2.5 minutes (Wattage D/850W), 3 minutes (Wattage C/750W), stop and stir halfway through. Leave to stand for a minute before taking out of the microwave, careful as you do…it will be hot!
On the hob method
Place 40g of porridge oats in a saucepan, stir in 150m of milk. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes stirring every now and again. When it’s ready turn the heat off and leave to stand for a minute before serving.
Why not add a dollop of peanut butter, golden syrup or top with a sliced banana. Other fruits and nuts are also a great addition. This is also an ideal snack for hungry growing children!

A super quick and healthier alternative to a pizza which is ideal for lunch or as a snack!
1 x plain flour tortilla
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
20g cheese – mature cheddar
Toppings of your choice such ham, pineapple, peppers or mushrooms
Using the tortilla instead of a dough pizza base, spread the tomato puree/passata over the tortilla and add the toppings of your choice. Scatter the cheese on top and grill on low for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
Makes four children’s portions
A good way to increase protein without using meat whilst the rise will slowly release energy.
The onion, carrot, tomatoes and peppers all increase the vitamin and mineral content as well as adding flavour.
