Tomorrow is World Porridge Day. It's a great opportunity for porridge lovers to have fun with your porridge and support the wonderful charity Mary's Meals. Mary’s Meals provides a good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day. The charity began feeding 200 children at a school in Malawi in 2001, and has since grown into a global movement providing life-changing meals to more than 1.2 million children in 14 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean every school day. Just £13.90 feeds an impoverished child for a whole school year. Support World Porridge Day by sharing your #PorridgeSmiles on social media and donate by texting 'OATS17 £2' to 70070 to donate £2, or you can of course donate more if you can afford it. Here are some of last year's PorridgeSmiles to inspire you. Have fun with your breakfast tomorrow! #porridge #worldporridgeday #marysmeals #charity #oats #porridgesmiles

It’s time to get oaty with our Hamlyns of Scotland competition.

Porridge is the food that fuels Scotland. It’s also one of the best foods you can eat for breakfast. Unlike other breakfast foods, natural, wholegrain oats are high in energy but low in fat. An average bowl of porridge contains around 171 calories, and only takes a few minutes on the hob or in the microwave so it is the perfect food for busy lifestyles. The night before work, make overnight oats with your favourite yoghurt and fruit, and pop it in the fridge overnight so they’re ready for when you get up in the morning.

Hamlyns of Scotland is the only porridge oats and oatmeal brand guaranteed to be Scottish from seed to mill to finished product. You’ll find lots of breakfast ideas and healthy recipes using porridge oats and oatmeal here.
