My grown son eats uncooked oatmeal soaked overnight in orange juice. Is that OK? Is the oatmeal as nutritious uncooked as cooked?

I don't see a problem with your son's preparation of oatmeal. It's a whole grain, and should maintain its nutritional value. I imagine the grains soaking up the orange juice makes it similar to a cooked consistency.
