This mum wows her family with healthy Christmas treats

Libby Butler is a 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge mum who has become more adventurous with her food and she is more open to trying out new things.

Despite this new adventurous spirit, her family is particularly happy that they still get to eat their favourite things!

This Christmas, there was no stopping her when it came to trying out new and healthy treats.

She prepared this Christmas dessert platter for an extended family lunch and it went down a treat!

Libby made double batches.

Did you know that your gingerbread cookie cutters can also help you create festive reindeer, it’s all about how you decorate them. Libby chose to stick to the traditional gingerbread men for her platter.
