Celebrating our beloved Pancakes!

There can be some hardship in everything, except for in eating pancakes.

( That includes writing this blog too ;) )


Ever wondered if pancakes have a day dedicated to it all around the world? Guess what? There is!


Light, fluffy, comforting, and delicious, pancakes are one of the best choices when it comes to breakfast meals or evening snacks, and even for ‘breakfast-for-dinner’ options. These fluffy cousins of crepes are very versatile from being sweet to salty, to crisp and chewy and take the place of being an ever-favorite, easy-to-make dish for all. But, that’s not all about pancakes. 

Book an appointment with Ms. Greate Sherene for Nutrition related concerns.


These delicious snacks can be prepared quite easily. Another add-on to the list is that you can prepare it with fruits, vegetables, cereals, and many more ingredients.
