CHILDREN at a day nursery in Yeovil have been having a flipping great time celebrating Pancake Day.

The Mama Bear’s Day Nursery & Pre-School, in Houndstone Close, celebrated Shrove Tuesday by designing their own pancakes before experimenting with the different toppings during a tasting session.

Mama Bear herself even made an appearance to entertain the children and join in with the seasonal fun.

Nursery manager in Yeovil, Cathy Offord, said: “Shrove Tuesday is a perfect opportunity to get the children experimenting with food and learning about new flavours and ingredients, while having fun.

"Understanding the importance of a healthy and balanced diet is part of everyday life in our nurseries and something we feel strongly about.

"The children always enjoy having our Mama Bear mascot to visit and we hope they enjoyed the special day."
