WORDS: Nabula Brdar
There is nothing better than the food at a kid’s birthday party, right?
But did you know you can still let the kids enjoy a treat, without loading them with artificial colours and flavours?
Because we all know the behaviour that can follow those ‘treats’.
Try a clean version of the famous classic, Fairy Bread. These simple swaps will reduce the amount of additives the kids are consuming from 20 to 1.
They will never know the difference!
