Low Salicylate Milo Slice

by | Feb 26, 2023

If you’ve got a little one who has been diagnosed with salicylate sensitivity, no doubt you’ve been racking your brain as to what to make them. These little milo slices are not only low in salicylate but are highly delicious, making the perfect lunch box or after-school snack. And it’s not just the young’uns who should get all the fun, this slice is great for the oldies too, my husband and I happily partake in a slice or two when we’re after a little sugar kick.

Enjoy! xx
