See celebrity chef Lesley Waters shows you how to cook Vanilla Fruit Strudel – a dessert full of whole grain health.


Mums are always looking to feed their families in the best way they can. But as we all know, families can be fuss. Not everyone has time to cook several different meals and pay attention to keeping everyone happy.

So what recipes are there that work, ticking all the boxes for fibre, vitamins, minerals, proteins and carbohydrates?

Celebrity chef Lesley Waters has created four mouth-watering new spring recipes, each featuring different Nestlé whole grain cereals, in her role as chef on Nestlé Team Whole Grain 2009.

Best known for her appearances on Ready Steady Cook, This Morning and Great Food Live, Lesley says “I really enjoyed creating these recipes and I hope they demonstrate to busy mums the versatility of whole grain.

“The dishes I’ve created are deliberately slightly unexpected and show that whole grain can be incorporated into a wide variety of meals and snacks.

“Team Whole Grain is all about encouraging mums and families to experiment more with whole grain ingredients as so many people are missing out on the amazing health benefits of whole grain – heart health, digestive health, aiding weight loss, to name but a few.”

In this video Lesley shows you how to cook one of these dishes - Vanilla Fruit Strudel.
