I do!

It's sort of creamier

And there's no saucepans needed

(I don't have a microwave)

Have I justified myself?!

No way -
ready brek - mush
porridge - yum yum!

we prefre RB here and tbh didnt know there was much of a difference?

We buy both!

Because it is smoother for a baby. I buy both - DD (10 months) has readybrek and I have porridge. Think rb is formless and tasteless. Probably could move DD onto porridge by now.

<<<Lucky you pondering, I had DD sat on my knee and she grabbed the mascara and got it all over her fingers and then went for the lip stick and I was already dressed in work clothes so had to carry her at arms length to the bathroom. Argh>>>

Actually buy Asda's copy of rb.

When I went to Bibic they told me that porridge is so much better for you and loads cheaper too. You can grind it down and it would be like ready brek.

I buy both too, but the version of RD I buy (Morrisons) has vitamins and iron added to it which is good news.

Porridge better for you and babies can eat it too

but

porridge takes 3 mins in microwave / ready brek 40 sec to heat milk

porridge is difficult to wash off / ready brek bowls rinse clean away

Ready Brek is smoother and quicker.

I wouldn't buy either for myself - when the kids were babies and I had to test Ready Brek for temperature I couldn't put it in my mouth - it makes me gag. I have been buying that new 'grown-up' Ready Brek for ds1. Can't remember what it's called but it's more porridgey (ie., lumpy) than Ready Brek. Tbh, the only thing I buy porridge oats for is making biscuits - it's never crossed my mind to make real porridge.

Because Ready Brek gives you that special glow!!

All though I prefer to get that from 3 glasses of red wine the night before

Ready Brek contains Rolled Oats, Oat Flour and vitamins and stuff. How is it reconstituted? [confused]

Well I don't really cook my porridge. Just do the warming milk up thing. DD has 40 secs on medium and I have 50 on full (for a small bowl).

Well why not?

My DS doesn't like the lumpyness of porridge but loves the taste, rather than spend more on something that probably has additives in it (don't really know) I just grind up the porridge oats in my blender lol
