Quaker Oats Oat So Simple Kids Review

We were sent a packet of the Chocolate variety to try for mumsnet.  We have not had much success introducing porridge to my boys before so I was really hoping the addition of the chocolate flavour would hopefully swing it and they would embrace porridge eating.


With it so cold lately I really think it is the perfect children’s breakfast, to warm them up and fill them with 100% natural ingredients before sending them out in the snow! 

My son happily rubbing his tummy, smiling.  I was convinced he must be enjoying it, as soon as the picture was taken he promptly spat his mouthful on the carpet…


I think he was just being a true professional for the camera!  But I am honour bound to tell you the truth and unfortunately it was not to be for my two.  Hubbie did not mind as he quite happily ate their two portions and plans to finish the box.


If your children already enjoy porridge these new flavours will most likely be a hit.  I wish I liked porridge more myself as the other flavours in the range, sound quite delicious, Fudge, Honey and Blueberry.  If your children are unsure about porridge at RRP of £2.19 for 10 sachets it is definitely worth giving them a try.  They might surprise you and love it!

You can find out more about the range on the website and it is available to buy from Tesco (on offer at the moment any two packs for £3.50, so the perfect time to give them a try!

  1. I love oat so simple myself - they have a golden syrup one - yummy!! Also because they come in individual packets they are ideal if you are into portion control (which it doesn't sound like Sean was!)

  3. I'm afraid that having tried oat so simple myself I will stick to making it myself with normal oats - it was very nice but far too sweet. My girls eat their porridge (and weetabix) with just milk. They have lots of sweet things anyway and don't need the encouragement of sweetness to demolish a large bowl of porridge and ask for more

  8. Yes I can see your point, but I was just hopeful it might help introduce them to a new food, but sadly no x
