Sleep well – the link between sleep and mental wellbeing is one that is incredibly powerful. Prioritise your sleep and the hour before you go to bed to allow your body and mind to unwind. Read, journal, have a bath, anything that doesn’t involve devices and over stimulation.

Do it with Activia:

Starting your day with a hearty breakfast can really make all the difference. Today why not try our autumnal granola with Activia 0% Vanilla and an apple and blackberry compote. Try the recipe below and let us know what you think!

⏲ Prep Time: 10 minutes; Cooking Time: 15 minutes
🍴 Serves: 4


  • 1 apple, diced

  • 150g blackberries

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 150ml water

  • 4 x 120g pot of Activia Vanilla 0% fat and 0% added sugar

For the Granola:

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 3 tbsp honey

  • 75g rolled oats

  • 25g flaked almonds

  • 50g hazelnuts, roughly chopped

  • 15g pumpkin seeds

  • 15g sunflower seeds

  • pinch of salt


1/ Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas x. Combine all the granola ingredients and spread them evenly across a baking tray. Bake for 8 mins until golden, turning halfway through. Once cooked, remove from the oven and allow to cool.

2/ To make the compote, wash your fruit then combine all the other ingredients, apart from the Activia yogurt, in a pan. Heat for 10 mins, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is soft and the mixture turns thick and jam-like. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

3/ When you’re ready to serve, pour the compote into a bowl (or a jar or container, if you’re taking it out with you), add the Activia yogurt, then top with some granola.
