Snack Time


In school or at home, kids in Sarangani province in the southern Philippines, love to eat pancakes for morning or afternoon snacks.

“My mom normally cooks pancake for us because it’s our favorite,” says 7-year old Kenneth (in red shirt).  “After we eat pancake, we feel energized again.”

Six-year-old Kianne says pancake is her favorite snack, too. “I love to eat it with sugar and butter. However, when we don’t have enough sugar and butter, I eat it as is,” she says.

Kia, age 10, says pancake is a favorite snack at school, too. A mother from her neighborhood sells them to students for only five pesos each. Many of the students eat pancake because it’s cheap and delicious.

“When the recess bell rings, the students would say together---it’s pancake break! After we eat pancakes, we play for some remaining time and then go back to the classroom to resume our classes,” says Kia.

Nicole, age 13, has been cooking pancake since she was 8 and tell how it’s done. “I combine the following ingredients: flour, baking powder, egg, sugar, and butter and then cook it in moderate heat. Because we don’t have electric stove at home, we use wood as fuel,” she says.
