5 Fun And Healthy Halloween Treats The Kids Will Love

Eeeek! It is nearly Halloween and every shop seems to be jammed full of lollies, chocolate and not so healthy foods.

We bet your kids are probably saying “Mum can I get one of those please?” We know ours are!

It can be tough – especially as Halloween is such a fun time of year with so many families now celebrating it.  As mums we end up saying NO all the time and feel a bit like the fun police.

But not this year!

We have some super fun recipes that get into the Halloween spirit but also show our kids how fun can be healthy too.
