• Nutritious Halloween-Themed Snacks

    Halloween is right around the corner. And that means our angelic children will soon turn into little demons and monsters after consuming copious amounts of sugar.

    What if this year we could forgo all of that sugar (and all of those unpleasant sugar crashes?) and instead feed our kids healthy snacks?

    The following snacks are fun, festive and best of all, healthy AND delicious!

    Cheese Monsters

    So simple and so cute. Simply take some mini Babel cheese rounds, cut out a jagged mouth line in the red casing, glue on a few wacky eyes to the upper part of the casing and abracadabra – you’ve got a festive, healthy snack.

    Halloween Fruit Salad

    For this delicious salad all you need is your imagination, fruit, and some good cutting skills. You can also use spooky cookie cutters to get ghost, cat and pumpkin shapes out of apple, pineapple, watermelon and cantaloupe slices. Use a little food coloring to create tiny eyes and your kids will be thrilled to eat their produce!

    Who says Halloween can’t be savory? These mini-pizzas are super flavorful and they look terrific! As an added bonus, these mummy pizzas are gluten-free!

    Pumpkin Spice Granola Cups with Yogurt

    Super simple and incredibly healthy. Kids will love to dig into this hummus with a variety of sliced veggies or pita chips!

    Halloween Banana Popsicles

    This is a fun and easy snack to make with yogurt and slices of banana. And they are incredibly fun to decorate.
