Stacey Solomon warns parents with young kids over DIY halloween snack
Stacey Solomon took to social media today to warn parents of a festive hazard after sharing a fun kids snack.
The halloween themed DIY treat consisted of white chocolate covered pretzels and marshmallows to resemble a skeleton.
The tv personality posted a video of her daughter, Rose, enjoying the snack before sharing a close up of their lovely creation.
Very quickly after sharing, the 33-year-old returned to her stories because parents were sharing serious concerns, describing the treat as a choking hazard.
“A few of you have messaged me and said some younger children can't chew big marshmallows properly so they can be dangerous,” Stacey said on her Instagram stories.
“So I just wanted to say, if you don't think your little one can handle big marshmallows then don't give it to them.”
Stacey went on to say she was unaware that some young children were unable to chew large marshmallows and said she had always given them to her kids.
“I've always given mine big marshmallows which is probably really wrong but I didn't know they were a risk or hazard,” she continued.
“I've always toasted them on the fire and things like that, but things happen and things change all the time.”
