Free From Halloween & #FreeFromFridays

Happy Friday everyone, and Happy Free From Halloween (a few days ahead!)! This week has been beyond busy for us, with Jumpy’s birthday, birthday parties and playdates, trips to the woods, long bikes rides, training and allergy challenges (Jumpy can now have wheat!).

Last week, I told you all about the teal pumpkin project. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, head over there!

Surprise, surprise, the couple of blog posts that really caught my eye last week were both Halloween-themed.

How cute are Charlotte’s spooky Halloween meringues?

If you’re after another ‘free from’ treat, check our homemade sherbet, which was really popular with trick or treaters last year!

My kids love Fizzy Sherbet! This homemade Dip Dab recipe will put a smile on their little faces. It's vegan, 'free from' and so tasty! We went for strawberry flavour, but you could use any freeze dried fruit you like. Oh, and there are only 4 ingredients! Recipe by 'Le Coin de Mel'

It’s #FreeFromFridays Time again!

We are planning to grow our Facebook community to help you share and promote your ‘free from’ content. Just request an invite here. We’d love to have you!

    I love the Halloween meringues, although as I was scrolling I was a little worried about what they were! Thank you for hosting the link up
