This flavour packed breakfast is a great and nutritious way to start your day.

Did you know that blueberries are native to North America and in addition to being delicious they are nutritional powerhouses. As one of the few “true blue” foods, blueberries have high levels of anthocyanin which not only give them their deep blue colour but have been shown to have effects on preventing cancer and slowing the aging process.[i]

On top of being packed with antioxidants, the brown rice base in this breakfast is high in fibre and will keep you full and satisfied longer

So go on, who says you can't start your day with dessert? Our rice pudding is such a nutritious and delicious treat, you should feel free to eat it anytime.
