Used to love the stuff when I was little blush.gif

Dad dropped a couple of boxes off the other day and do you think I can remember how to make it!

Do you have to cook it in the microwave like you do with Oats or do just pour warm milk over it??

First origins of ProNutro dates back to the early 1930's when a great need for a cereal that could help prevent malnutrition in babies, existed.  The introduction of this 'wonder food' was seen as a milestone in the fight against malnutrition.

ProNutro adapted and changed across 4 decades to meet the needs of the times and of generations of people. Today it is as much a part of South African lives as earlier and is the first cereal in the world to be able to offer the health promoting properties it provides.  ProNutro's nutritional claims have always been based on a high level of nutritional evidence and research and can rightfully claim to be the most nutritious family cereal in South Africa.

It is the source of 18 vitamins and minerals and is approved as part of the South African Heart Foundation eating plan.


A soy and maize based wheat free cereal for the whole family and recognised as the most nutritious family cereal in South Africa.  

It contains 18 vitamins and minerals with added nutraceuticals and is available in 4 delicious flavours, nl. Original, Chocolate, Strawberry and Banana.

I just cut and paste that from the internet, just in case anyone else was interested.

Cheers, Regi

Don't you just add a little warm milk??  unsure.gif  DH goes on and on and on about how much he loves the stuff but we've not tried it yet. lol I've also been told by a friend of ours that you can make it yourself just with polenta (maize meal) and mashed banana or whatever you want then bake it till it's crumbly. I'm not sure how that would work but aparently it's not too bad. Obviously then you just cook it the same with warm milk.

Oh and we've only seen it at a 'foreign food store.'
