    The following foods are all good sources of dietary fibre…
    • Wholemeal, granary and softgrain varieties of bread
    • Jacket potatoes, new potatoes in their skins and baked potato skins
    • Wholegrain breakfast cereals, eg. Weetabix, branflakes, unsweetened muesli, Shreddies and porridge oats
    • Wholemeal pasta and brown rice
    • Beans, lentils and peas
    • Fresh and dried fruits – particularly if the skins are eaten
    • Vegetables – particularly if the skins are eaten
    • Nuts and seeds
    • Wholemeal flour

    Hello,
    THe plain oatmeal is kind of difficult to consume.
    You can try flavoured oatmeals. I consume 'Honey nut' flavoured otameal for my breakfast. I like that.
    Most of the fruits and vegetables has fiber (apple, orange, spinach etc).

    Good luck,
    Punitha
