#FoodieFridays | Organix’s Gruffalo-themed muffin tin meal recipe

Toddler snack brand, Organix have teamed up with Chessington World of Adventures Resorts to offer little explorers (and adults too!) a chance to go free. You can find the vouchers on the packaging of Organix snack packs, I found mine on the Organix Goodies bars. Each voucher entitles one adult or one child free entry to the park and the Gruffalo ride with one full paying adult on the day. The voucher can’t be used in conjunction with any other offer and full T&Cs can be found online at Chessington.com/organix.

We’re planning to use our voucher this Halloween half term as Chessington has some spooky special events on this October. I’ll write up a post shortly on our trip to Chessington if we end up going. πŸ™‚

To celebrate their new partnership, Organix have come up with this little healthy recipe, a Gruffalo themed muffin tin meal so little ones can recreate the story with their food…
