Interesting children’s meals for Halloween with Birds Eye

My children are easily bored. This means that I often have to think up some super interesting meals for them.

Of course with 3 of them running circles (literally) round me, I have to prepare  these meals really quickly. That’s why I am constantly on the prowl for inspiration to be able to make interesting, wholesome meals for them.

With Halloween almost upon us, Birds Eye commissioned Georgina Besterman to create some super spooky creations to keep the children entertained and eating at the table!
