Birds eye #Halloween meal suggestions


Birds Eye has commissioned food artist, Georgina Besterman, to create a selection of frightening food serving suggestions to help mums get their kids to the teatime table.




We was sent a few vouchers to try and recreate some of these spooky but yummy looking Halloween meals our selves, we manage to create three of the dishes the pictures below are our creations do they look good.


We was sent recipes with ingredients and instructions on how to make each dish don't they look great !

There were four dishes but we could only find the ingredients for three of the dishes. Michaela aged 7 made the Witch, Mummy made the Bat and Callum aged 10 made the Ghost. We had so much fun making them especially on a special day like Halloween the kids loved adding a little Spookiness to their meals. They said it made their Halloween fun and I had three happy children who cleared their plates.
