How to make edible sand

Babies love sandpits, but they also want to eat all of the things, which makes for little mouths full of sand. So one canny mumma has created sand that’s perfectly safe to eat.

It’s a deliciously sweet sensory play idea made from just one ingredient you probably have in the pantry.

TikTok user Ella Anna Christine shared a quick video of how to create edible sand for toddlers – and all it involves is blitzing up some Cheerios cereal in a blender. That’s it.
