The Donnelly family from County Armagh in Northern Ireland says a regular diet of oatmeal has contributed to their long lives. The 13 siblings received the Guinness World Record for being the oldest family in the world, achieving a combined age of 1,075 years.

According to The Independent, the family grew up on a farm and had a diet of locally-sourced ingredients, which included free-range pigs and chickens as well as vegetables from their garden. The siblings regularly ate oatmeal before bed and then first thing the following morning, which they say contributed to their long lives and good health.
