Tasty and healthy FairPrice meals with Red Tractor oats and Australia's Own Protein Milk products

Treating yourself to a meal that is both tasty and nutritious is sometimes an inconvenience.

Also, foods that line the healthy section of the supermarket often come with a heftier price tag, as do places that serve clean eats.

One of the best foods you can make for yourself at home is oats.

Healthier than granola and suitable for both weight-watchers and those with chewing problems, oats provide an ideal all-in-one breakfast.

The humble oat is rich in protein, dietary fibre, several B vitamins and dietary minerals, especially manganese.

Not only does it possess cholesterol-lowering effects, it is enormously filling, which will curb your appetite so you eat less throughout the day.

The Red Tractor oats range is a great way to kick-start your morning, and it complements Australia's Own Protein Milk products perfectly, both of which are exclusively available at selected FairPrice stores.

It is also a natural source of energy, with no added sugar.
