Anorexic girl’s porridge passion ‘saved her life’


A girl with anorexia has credited her love of porridge with saving her life.

Madeleine Harris was diagnosed with the eating disorder aged 13.

The 17-year-old, from Etwall, Derbyshire, said eating porridge helped with her recovery.

Since then she has amassed thousands of followers – or “oatlings” – on her Instagram page, featuring her unusual porridge recipes.

She even entered the World Porridge Making Championships this month in Scotland.
