As Jen’s son is becoming more independent, he has started preparing overnight oats so that he can have an extra couple of minutes in bed in the morning.  This is a basic recipe for one person that is easy to adapt for more people and according to your family’s preferences. 


  •  50g oats, gluten-free if necessary
  • 100ml apple juice
  • 1 apple, grated
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt, dairy-free if necessary
  • Handful of blueberries


  1. The night before, put the oats and apple juice in a bowl, stir and cover. Leave in the fridge overnight.
  2. The next morning stir the oats mix and add more apple juice as needed. Stir in the grated apple. Add the yoghurt and blueberries.

Team Tip:

You can make this your own by replacing the apple juice with water, milk or another juice of your choice and/or substituting the grated apple and blueberries with other fruits (bananas are easy to slice in the morning for example) and your selection of dried fruit, nuts and seeds.


**Always check the ingredients of any food you’re cooking with to make sure it doesn’t contain something you or your child should avoid.
