“Pancakes really are a fantastic way to use up ingredients and are super easy and quick to whip up when you’re facing hungry kids,” says leading dietitian Susie Burrell.
“To keep pancakes healthy, focus on including fresh and natural ingredients like nut spreads, fruit, vegetables and herbs and reduce the use of sugars and artificial sweeteners.”
