Other version of this sentence give "oats" as an alternate. Unless it's just been changed, I've not seen oatmeal listed.

Strictly speaking the only translation for 'Uwd' is porridge.

Oats is 'Ceirch'

Oatmeal is 'Blawd Ceirch' (literally oat flour)

However since a number of people indicated that 'Oatmeal' , in their dialect of English, is synonymous with the cooked meal we think of in the UK as porridge, it has been added as an alternative correct answer.

So the alternative "oats" has been removed?

Uwchradd = high (as in high school). My kind but clueless Chinese friend once told everybody that she used to go to Shanghai Central Oatmeal School.
