This is one of the most nutricious breakfast dishes you can serve for your entire family. I have been serving this porridge to my children ever since they were 5 months old. They stopped for a couple of years when they were 2 to 4 years and had to struggle an entire summer vacation to get them to start eating this porridge again. And ever since it is the breakfast they have before they head out to school.
