    1. Thanks – they are very tasty. We had fun making them and had a lovely Halloween thank you and hope you did too 🙂

  2. Monkey loves Tuna so I am sure these would be a great hit and raw peppers (not cooked for some reason) although red would be his favourite. Great idea thank you for sharing #kidsinthekitchen x

  3. What a great, healthy and easy way to enjoy Halloween! Thanks for sharing, I think my mummy is going to try this at the weekend 🙂 #letskidsbekids #twinklytuesday x

  4. What a fantastic idea! I am not a fan of fish so don’t feed it to my kids often enough! I think even I could manage this idea though!! I do worry that they need more fish in their diets so I will definately be gioving this one a go! Thankyou so much for all your fantastic kitchen inspiration, it’s such a joy to have you on #kidsinthekitchen xx

      1. I’ve just shown these to T and he loved them, will be adding to next weeks meal plan! Thanks for linking up with #toddlerapprovedtuesday xx

  5. What a clever idea! I will be giving this a go as i am not a fan on Pumpkins. Peppers however taste nice and my kids will enjoy making and eating their own Halloween snacks 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

  6. These are a lovely Halloween snack! I think I am going to need to have a special Halloween meal for everyone on Saturday! These will most definitely be on the list of food we’re going to make!
    Thanks so much for linking up to #HowtoSunday 🙂 x

  7. omg. This is such a genius idea, I can’t believe I’ve not thought of it before! My daughter is a bit obsessed with pumpkins at the moment so this might be a simple way to get her to eat a wider variety of foods!

  8. These are such a brilliant idea and soooo much easier than carving a pumpkin! Ideal for kids to help with making them too, as well as eating them. I will definitely be trying my hand at these as soon as my little one’s old enough to appreciate them! Thanks for sharing x #KCACOLS
