School holidays can be difficult for parents; organising activities for the kids or finding suitable holiday care while they work. The weekly routine is interrupted this time of year again, but for many, the lunch preparations don't stop. The kids still have to eat, and often they're after more exciting meals since its their 'time off' after all!

Ultimately they're after fun meals, and many little ones will want to join in the kitchen activities, especially when it comes to baking.
