Then pour in the edible glitter and shake it all up! We prefer red or green glitter as they’re the most Christmassy colours!

Top tips!

Always use edible glitter that is safe for reindeer and other wildlife to consume (you never who may end up eating your reindeer food if you sprinkle it on the lawn!)

If it’s a rainy night, make sure you sprinkle your reindeer food on the grass and not on the driveway (if it rains overnight, you don’t want to wake up to porridge all over the drive!)
