LIFESTYLE – Avoid Sugar Overload This Halloween- Healthier, Fun & Creative Sweet Treats
From decorations to parties and trick-or-treating, Halloween is an exciting time of year for kids to get creative and colourful with their snacks. The making and decorating of sweet treats is a fun activity to get into the spooky spirit, however, it also brings the added opportunity for sugar overload. Containing over 30% less sugar than the average biscuit, Nairn’s snacks are made with nutritious wholegrain oats which are high in fibre, vitamins and minerals to provide a good dose of slow-releasing energy, rather than the crash and burn that normally follow sugary foods.
Providing a fun-filled activity, here are three easy Halloween-themed treats designed to contain less sugar:
Gluten-Free S’Mores with Nairn’s GF Chocolate Chip Oat Biscuit Breaks, RRP £1.99
A gooey and indulgent sandwich of bliss, these classic and comforting sweet treats are a Halloween party favourite among adults and kids but made with 30% less sugar than the average biscuit. Simply grill the marshmallow until caramelised, sandwich the Oat Biscuit Breaks, and drizzle your melted chocolate…..enjoy!
