Stacey Solomon has issued a warning to address a choking hazard she was unaware of.
The Loose Women star is getting into the Halloween mood by making homemade ‘skeleton on a stick’ treats with marshmallows and pretzels.
The I’m A Celeb winner shared a video of Rose in deep concentration as she decorated the snack ahead of the spooky season.
"So simple and easy but Rose loved making it. It's just white chocolate pretzels & mini marshmallows on a stick and then a big marshmallow of the head," Stacey wrote alongside a photo of the finished treat.
To stacey’s surprise, the video was criticised by her followers and Stacey responded to the reactions in a video shared on her Instagram Story.
While holding baby Belle and with a car alarm going off in the background, Stacey addressed the controversy surrounding the snack. “A few of you have messaged me and said some younger children can't chew big marshmallows properly so they can be dangerous.
"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."
She explained: “"I've always given mine big marshmallows which is probably really wrong but I didn't know they were a risk or hazard.
"I've always toasted them on the fire and things like that, but things happen and things change all the time."
"The carnage in this video - the kids, the car alarm, this is after-school reality," she wrote on the Instagram Story.
Stacey recently revealed that she and Joe are done having children. The pair - who met back in 2010 after Stacey, 33, rocked up to the jungle for ITV's I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! while Joe was presenting the spin-off show - have three children together.
Their oldest together is Rex, 4, along with one-year-old Rose and Belle who is just seven months.
Joe also has one other child from a previous relationship, 16-year-old Harry, while Stacey has two sons, Zachary, 15, and Leighton, 11, from two other previous relationships.
“We don’t want any more – we cannot cope with it,” she told The Mirror. “Yeah, we wanted all these kids and we’re so grateful to have them. So we will get romantic… but in 20 years’ time.”
