Overnight oats

Let's make overnight oats

Prep time
5 minutes

40g porridge oats

200g natural yoghurt (full fat for children aged 1-2)

1-2 handfuls of mixed berries (ideally frozen)

A clear cup, jar or a standard bowl



Overnight oats

Layer the fruit, yoghurt and oats repeatedly until the container is full. Cover and put in the refrigerator overnight so the oats absorb the yoghurt.

In the morning remove from the fridge and enjoy!

Serving suggestions
  • The quantities used here make enough overnight oats for 1 adult. 
  • You can use any fruit for overnight oats, you could use apple, pear and cinnamon, banana, strawberries, anything you can think of.
  • You could add seeds such as chia seeds for a jelly like texture, smooth peanut butter for extra protein.
  • We recommend doubling up this recipe and having enough for breakfast for a couple of days.
  • You could also use any dairy alternative yoghurts for this recipe.
Top tips
  • We recommend using frozen berries as these defrost in the fridge overnight and are juicier, meaning for fruit flavour can be absorbed into the yoghurt and oats
  • Frozen, fresh and tinned fruit (in juice) all work great, as do purees.
  • Using clear jars and cups can help make this meal even more fun as children can get involved layering the fruits and making a delicious colourful breakfast. We recommend getting some small cups/jars for children’s portions
