I never am very good at eating breakfast with the kids before school but feel I should be.  I feel as a good Scottish girl I should also embrace porridge in these cold wintery days - all my grampa's generation swore by starting the day with a bowl of it (and often ending the day with a wee dram too).  I don't think I'll ever like whiskey but I want to make myself eat porridge ... and voila, the solution appears to be sweet freedom - a honey like  syrup to pour on top that isn't quite as calorific and feels (sort of healthy).  add a handful of blueberries and a breakfast that I can now face at 8am has been born
