If you’re organising a spooky Halloween party and want everyone to have a break from the overload of lollies, then check out these delicious healthy snacks.

Coming up with a range of Halloween party food can often be tricky when guests have food issues. Which is why these recipes are perfect for anyone with digestive problems as they’re all low Fodmap.

Dietitian Eloise Turner, who works with gut-friendly snack bar company Fodbods, and came up with these devilish morsels says, “When preparing food for a large range of guests, it’s always important to be aware of food intolerances.

“These Halloween snacks are low in Fodmaps – which are certain carbohydrates in common foods such as gluten, dates and honey – that some people who suffer from conditions such as IBS find hard to digest.”

Try them out for a Halloween themed party or as funky lunchbox snacks for kids. They’re also super easy to prepare, so don’t get spooked!
