Oh no, not pancakes again!
Theme: Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Day, fair trade, food
Country: Guatemala

Everyone looks forward to Pancake Day, don't they?

Maybe we wouldn't be so keen if pancakes were the only thing on offer!

Our February assembly for primary schools explores the meaning behind Shrove Tuesday and the importance of eating a balanced diet.

We travel to Guatemala to meet children who also like 'pancakes' (tortillas), but whose families have in the past struggled to provide varied food to keep them healthy.

Find out what Christian Aid and its partners are doing to help stop malnutrition in this part of the world, and celebrate pancakes with us!
