Goulish Treats for all ages with Tommee Tippee

We've been weaning for almost a year now but this is Scarlet's first Halloween where she can enjoy all the delicious treats the event brings. Last year we hadn't even been thinking about food but have you ever thought about what snacks you could add to your party for babies and toddlers?

You've come to the right place. We've teamed up with Tommee Tippee to give you some fantastically frightful snacks that are perfect for babies and toddlers right from the start of weaning through to finger foods everyone can enjoy.  

We'll start with some Ghastly Greens, packed full of goodness there isn't much that's ghastly about them! Plus they are really easy to make with the Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender. Add all the ghastly green vegetables into the steamer and steam for 15 minutes. Remove any left over water and blend to a smooth texture without lumps and voila! You've got yourself some Ghastly Greens ready for all those little ones. Perfect for any babies over 6 months and into stage two of weaning. I think this would also make for a great little dip for toddlers and older children too. We can all use a little extra greens! 

Another recipe perfect for the Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender is Monstrous Beef and Sweet Potato mash. Seriously how good does that sound? Another super simple recipe to make. Chop and dice up all the ingredients and mix together in a bowl. Add to the Steamer Blender and steam for two 30 minute cycles. Once finished you can blend up to either a smooth consistency (2 minutes) or for a some texture make a mashed up version (30 seconds). I'm sure this one is bound to be a hit. If your making this recipe and have children of all ages coming you'd be able to make some for the older children too. 

Now for some finger foods. Perfect for toddler and children alike. You could whip up some super simple Boo-nana Pops. Cut a banana in half length ways and again across the middle. Slide each onto a lolly stick (I used a wooden skewer which was cut to length and had no sharp ends), add on some raisins for eyes and your Boo-Nana Pops are ready to get haunting! These where a big hit with us. Dylan and Scarlet are mad for bananas and these where the first to go at our tea party. 

The final recipe I'm sharing is Silly Apple Bites. Little monster faces turn apple quarters into fun and silly creatures everyone will love eating. The great thing is the sunflower butter is diary free too. Take two apples, cut into quarters and remove the cores. Cut through the middle of each quarter to make a small mouth hole where you will add some sunflower butter add in four sunflower seeds to make some teeth before you slide in a slice of strawberry for a tongue. Add on the raisins or try some chocolate buttons instead for eyes and your all set. 

Ghoulish treats perfect for any Halloween party! What's not to love. 
Happy Halloween!
