As we continue to spend the majority of our time at home, it’s safe to say that Mother’s Day this year is going to be a little different. But while we might not be able to dine out at our favourite restaurants or celebrate the woman of the hour with a nice cocktail at her favourite bar, there are plenty of ways of having the same quality food and drink at home.
From pancakes for breakfast to a slow-cooked Sunday Roast, we’ve got all the different ways you can ensure that this Mother’s Day celebrations are up to par with the usual.
Why not treat dear old mum to breakfast in bed this Mother’s Day and deliver her a plate of Stacks of Goodness’ pancakes?

The baking mix company uses all natural ingredients so all that’s left for you to do is stack you mum’s pancakes high and dig in.
Sometimes you just want to start the day right and why not with one of Daioni’s Organic coffee drinks? Choose from Caffe Latte, Skinny Latte and Double Shot options – there’s no added sugar and a higher-than-average nutritional profile (so that’s more calcium, protein and vitamin B12).
