Visit www.biggest­morn­ingtea.com.au My favourite par­ent­ing mo­ment is… I work long hours and some­times it’s hard to bal­ance ev­ery­thing. Whether it is play­ing at the beach, bath time or read­ing sto­ries be­fore bed, the time I get with the kids is all very spe­cial to me. My most em­bar­rass­ing par­ent­ing mo­ment is… We were sit­ting in a small restau­rant and Sophia needed to go to the toi­let and started yelling at some peo­ple try­ing to sit down next to us to go away be­cause she needed “ to go poo”! The fun­ni­est thing I re­mem­ber one of my kids say­ing is… “Daddy’s got boo­bies!” I had to ex­plain to Sophia that Mummy has boo­bies and Daddy has pecs. Food is im­por­tant be­cause… Not just food, but good food. Fresh in­gre­di­ents, freshly pre­pared, do won­ders for healthy young bodies and healthy young minds. My favourite meal to cook for the whole fam­ily is… It may sound bor­ing, but it’s a good hearty roast with all the trim­mings – roast pota­toes, sweet po­tato, roast parsnips and car­rots and won­der­ful sauces and ac­com­pa­ni­ments. For Aus­tralia’s big­gest morn­ing tea on May 28, I will be… Drink­ing lots of tea, serv­ing won­der­ful bis­cuits at my restau­rant Plan B and con­tribut­ing to the cause.
