It would be no surprise to parents of 2 (or more) that the transition to a larger family size has it’s good & “not so good” moments. Last night we had a “not so good” string of moments with our jealous toddler. So, this morning we needed a quick boost brekky – a bit of a change from our normal routine (without making it taxing on me).

We made some quick wholemeal pikelets with dried fruit. My daughter helped (mostly between jealous tears as I was holding the baby) and soon cheered up watching the cooking pikelets.


Quick Pikelet Batter:
Mix 1/2 cup wholemeal flour, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, 1/2 cup low joule lemonade or soda water, 1 tbsp golden syrup or honey (depending on how sweet you like pikelets) and a handful of dried fruit.

Do you find a little change up to your routine or making a special meal can help ‘reset’ your family?
