World Porridge Day celebrates the history and origins of this rich and delicious breakfast, and all of the health benefits they bring to those who indulge in them.
History of World Porridge Day
Porridge, it so happens, is the traditional national dish of Scotland, and has been keeping the people of this country healthy for hundreds of years. Every year in the Scottish Highland Village of Carrbridge a competition is held, the World Porridge Making Championship, to determine the porridge champion who best exemplifies the flavor and experience of this food.
How to celebrate World Porridge Day
First, start your day off with a big bowl of porridge to make sure you get the best beginning you can hope for. Then start considering how you can make a morning like that a reality for people everywhere. You can work together with Mary’s Meals to create celebrations and fund-raisers to help feed these children all over the world. There are often local areas you can volunteer to work in as well, places like soup kitchens and homeless shelters where food is being made for the less fortunate. You can even make porridge based cookies and flapjacks to really bring the humble oat to the table.
