Carrie and her children Oliver, 11, Evie and Adelaide, four months old, undoubtedly hidden in the bickies with their father, Carries partner Chris Walker.

Oliver is Carrie's son from her relationship with her husband Greg Lange, who died in 2010.

Anzac cookies were originally made by soldiers' wives, partly because they were well preserved during long months of maritime transport.

The cookies have now become so iconic that companies, bakeries and individuals can incur heavy fines if they mess with the traditional recipe of the Anzac cookies.

This includes a $ 51,000 fine for companies and a $ 10,000 fine for individual sellers, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

In addition, sellers must be licensed by Veterans & # 39; Affairs to sell products with the word & # 39; Anzac & # 39; and the treats may not be indicated by other names such as & # 39; cookies & # 39 ;.
