My doctor said they are good for fibre in your diet as long as they are not the processed ones like the sachet flavoured varieties. I love the raw rolled oats mixed with greek yoghurt not the low fat one as it is too sweet and has a lot of sugar added.

  • any food that is processed will pale in dietry goodness as they usually add sugars and salts and anything else to make it moreish. oats are good food that fills

  • I think they are great. They definitely keep you full and can stop you from reaching for the sugar later in the day.

  • My husband eats oats all year round whereas I prefer them in winter. They are very good for you.

  • The low fat Greek yoghurt isn’t necessarily packed with sugar. Check labels as not all brands add lots of sugar.

  • The whole oats have many and varied health benefits. They are a staple breakfast of mine

  • They are good for you because they help digestion, slowing down the release of sugars so your body can process food better, and contain fibre to keep bowels working. I think they are also gluten free (at least free of wheat gluten), so are a good cereal alternative if that is a sensitivity. Can’t think of when it would be bad to east them unless you were already overloaded with carbohydrates, and then would probably be a good idea to swap some of those for oats.

  • I had my greek yoghurt today with raw oats . Nothing like it.

  • Yeah, I like oats with Greek yoghurt too – super yum!

  • yes i guess that makes sense. food is better as close to raw as you can get.

  • I’ve only ever heard they are good for you. I don’t like them as porridge, although one of my daugthers does, but I love them in biscuits.

  • I had rolled oats today mixed with full cream Greek yoghurt. Very nice and healthy as well!

  • The whole family loves Uncle Toby Oats and have eaten them for years . I really hope it isn’t this one !

  • Glad we convinced you! They taste good too! ;)

  • I am convinced by all your amazing answers. Oats in their nearest to nature state are good for you. QED.

  • Rolled oats are incredibly good for you and I make my own muesli mixture with rolled oats.
