Did you know the 10th of October is WORLD PORRIDGE DAY. To celebrate I’ve decided to do a round up post of recipes that I’ve made on my blog or for other companies/ bloggers.

World porridge day supports the work of the charity ‘Mary’s Meals’, which provides daily meals to over 1.1 million children in the developing world, including a daily mug of maize porridge every school day to children in Malawi. Mary’s Meals say “ World Porridge Day celebrates the huge difference this daily mug of porridge makes to the lives of chronically hungry children”.

You can help at any time of the year by donating using this link . It costs just £12.20 to feed a child for a whole year! But give what you can – I have donated £5.

You can also get involved by taking a photo of your porridge then sharing it on social media using the hashtag #PorridgeSmiles (or you can email it to Mary’s Meals).  Here’s my photo I made using my Best Ever Chocolate Zoats (a.k.a. zucchini oats) recipe with optional superfoods.

I decided to add a layer of strawberries under the oats, which is so yummy because they get ‘melted’ by the hot porridge and go nice and gooey.
