All about feeding our little foodies

Pop Tarts!

I don’t know about you but I love pop tarts!  They’re a real guilty pleasure of mine as an occasional treat but lets face it, they aren’t the healthiest of snacks.  I decided to have a go at making something a little bit healthier that I could enjoy with the kids and it was surprisingly easy.
