I decided to find out what my own children thought of pancakes, made using spelt and wholemeal flours, and with not a sugar bowl in sight.
Last week, first one child had a really high temperature, and then the other two succumbed to the same virus too.
More often than not, my two and a half year old turns down dinner.
He takes one look at the lovingly prepared – and, I assure you, very tasty – meal, and says, ‘No. Don’t like dinner.’
In my determination to get out of my boring food rut, while at the same time focusing on weeknight dinners that can be served up within 30 minutes, I’ve invested in a slow cooker. (Read more about my Healthier Mummy challenge here: Do you have mealtime déjà vu?)
