Kids Good Stuff recipe

Recipe by Charissa & Co.

Kids home? Breakfast getting you down? Get the kids involved into helping out when it comes to food preparation especially on Sunday afternoons. This is a great way for them to understand more about whole foods and possibly get them more excited in having their breakfast in the morning as they helped make it.

With this simple oatmeal slice, you can make it in the late afternoon and keep it in the fridge overnight for the next morning. Plus doing this brings benefits:

Why? As we know not all carbs are created equal. From sugars to starches to fiber, different carbs have different effects on our health and digestion.

So, as oats is a starch when cooked and left to cool the structure of the molecules change. Forming a type of starch - Resistant starch, this is a carb that is also considered a type of fiber and we don’t physically digest this. Therefore our gut bacteria feast on this resistant starch.

Resistant starch provides health benefits.

As it is not digested by the cells of our small intestine, it is available for the bacteria in the large intestine to use.

Resistant starch is a prebiotic, therefore it provides “food” for the good bacteria in your intestines.
