It's not every day we're encouraged to eat pancakes, which is why Mayver's loves to celebrate Pancake Day, which this year, falls on February 25.
Also known as Shrove Tuesday, the celebration marks the final day before Lent and originated as a way to use up leftover ingredients before the fasting period. It's also a fantastic excuse to celebrate and enjoy one of our favourite foods.
Leading dietitian Susie Burrell says pancakes are an easy, versatile meal that can be as healthy or as indulgent as you like.
"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," she says.
"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."
