Which Sprinkles are Best for Small Children?

by Owen Redford

When using sprinkles in bakes, they can often include styles that may be difficult for children to eat or even cause a potential hazard. We’ve been asked a few times which of our sprinkles are “child-friendly” and can be used when baking with kids in mind. At Baking Time Club, we have loads of sprinkle singles and mixes that fall into this category, which include sprinkles with pearls no bigger than 4mm (pearls are round and crunchy and have a similar consistency to the famous Nerds brand of sweets/candy). Have a read below for some of our most popular sprinkles that are completely suitable for kids and click on the titles to be taken to the corresponding page on our website. If you have any more questions, please feel free to contact us!
