  • ½ medium apple
  • ½ cup (60g) muesli (97%fat-free)
  • ½ cup (130 g) low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • ¼ cup fresh or frozen berries, to serve cinnamon, to serve (optional)




  1.  Wash and grate apple and place in a small bowl.
  2.  Stir in muesli, yoghurt and berries.

Health tip: This recipe is great for upset digestive systems, which is a common problem in pregnancy. It is high in fibre, beneficial bacteria (probiotics) and vitamins.

Cook’s tips: Larger portions can be made by simply increasing equal-sized portions of all three ingredients.  Any variety of apple can be used.  Sprinkle with nuts to add protein, fibre and healthy unsaturated fats.  Replace apple with ½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries or blueberries for a different flavour.

Low Lactose – Use Lactose Free yoghurt

Gluten Free – Use GF muesli

Toddler: Children should drink full cream cows mild from 12 months of age until 2 years of age. After 2 years, either full cream or reduced fat milk can be used.
