Halloween is a big deal for kids – especially for our friends over the pond (we’re only slightly jealous…!). But how can you do it healthy? We’ve come up with 4 recipes for you and your kids to do over the weekend. And since we’re all busy, we’ve tried to make the recipes as easy as possible – a handful here, a handful there et voilà!
