5 spook-tastic Halloween treats (that are actually healthy)

Eeeek! It is nearly Halloween and every shop seems to be jammed full of sweets, chocolate and not so healthy foods. Taking the kids to the shops is probably proving more and more difficult as they want EVERYTHING they see – and not the healthy stuff!

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.
