Scary Spider Courgette Pizza Bites

Perfect for Halloween, or any time of the year!  This Scary Spider Courgette Pizza Bites recipe has been created for doddl by Adam from At Dad’s Table. One to really help with getting your children involved in the preparation of their food.

“Check these out for some scary Halloween snacks! Scarily healthy that is! (Sorry.)

More importantly, my almost 4-year-old cut up a huge courgette all by himself using his doddl knife. I didn’t need to help him at all. It’s completely safe too, doddl knives are designed to cut through food, not little hands, so I don’t need to worry. Giving him tasks to do like this is so great for his confidence and his sense of ownership too.

You might have seen Benji using doddl cutlery in a lot of my videos on @at_dads_table on Instagram, they’re really helping him learn how to hold a fork and spoon. Well now you can see that the knives are also great for bigger kids to start preparing their own food! I think I’ll put my feet up.

Enjoy making these Scary Spider Courgette Pizza Bites!”
