It's said that if you want to feel the benefits of oats, it should be consumed daily, at least 1 cup. With our regular food habit where the concept of breakfast has been replaced by 'brunch', very few of us hardly think of taking oats with milk and fruits on a religious basis. Nevertheless, I think eating it twice or thrice a week is better than not having it at all.
