Healthy October Treats to encourage your Kids to eat well this Autumn

Posted by Pottiagogo on

Eating and drinking healthily is essential to our everyday health and it can help us all to poop well too! Here at Pottiagogo HQ we believe you can never start too early to teach your children about good food and what goes into making a scrummy dish. So this month we have set out two simple recipe ideas for you to make for an everyday breakfast or spice it up a bit in a kid friendly way for a weekend treat for 1 or 2 little people. All recipes can be vegan if you choose too! We hope you will find these a fun and healthy way to start your day together

Pumpkin Spice Porridge Recipe for 1

50g oats ( can go jumbo or probably prefer the finer grained oats)

1 tsp pumpkin spice (¼ tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp nutmeg, ¼ tsp ground ginger, ⅛ tsp ground gloves….or just cinnamon if you think this might be too much of a taste overload for your LO’s!)

50g canned pureed pumpkin (it is naturally sweet tasting)

Plant milk/milk/water to desired consistency


Simply mix it all together in a small serving cup or bowl and add a combo or any or all over the following toppings (which are always the really good bits!) 


Sliced banana 

Sliced strawberries


Fruit or maple syrup


Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe for 1

75g self raising flour

1tsp baking power

¼ tsp bicarb of soda

70g pureed pumpkin

120ml plant milk/milk of choice

1tsp vanilla essence


Mix all ingredients until you have a thick but smooth batter

Prepare and heat a lightly greased flying pan over a medium to high heat

Use one tablespoon full of the mixture per pancake and dollop each one into the pan and cook for 2 to 4 mins on each side. This is a bit tricky here as it depends on how thick the pancakes are and how hot you pan is but each side should look slightly browned and toasted.

Repeat until all batter used up and serve with the toppings of your choice.

Have fun with the ideas and enjoy experimenting together!
