It’s that time of year again when a dizzying array of new stationery is on offer, the queue to get growing feet measured is, well, immeasurable and ideas to fill the lunchbox and keep growing minds happy for the academic year is a challenge.

Oats are also a great way to feed growing bodies and minds. Like other cereal grains, oats are valued primarily as a source of carbohydrates that provide calories for energy needs. It has been shown in scientific studies to favourably alter metabolism and enhance performance when ingested 45 minutes to 1 hour before exercise.
Oats also make you feel fuller for longer and new research suggests that children between the ages of 2 to 18 who have a constant intake of oatmeal (ground oats) lowered their risk of obesity. Children who ate oatmeal were 50% less likely to become overweight, when compared to those children that did not eat it. Oats can also prevent spiking trends in your blood glucose level by slowing down digestion in the stomach and intestine, which prolongs the absorption of carbohydrates into the bloodstream and stops you from having that horrendous sugar crash – one which many of us are all too familiar with!
