    We have a gas problem at the moment, so no oven baking for us, only what we can do in the electric frying pan so I'm currently making pikelets every few days to stock up the freezer and incorporate baking into our day. Looks like it will be:

    2x fruit
    1x yoghurt
    1x sandwich
    pikelets.

    Pikelets are a great idea! I might make some to freeze for when playgroup starts again.
    We sometimes take cereal in small containers. Like cherios just to snack on if I haven't had a chance to get to the green grocers that morning.
