Halloween Themed Snacks
Halloween is here and that means candy on the brain. Even though candy seems to be October’s food of the month, some of us are trying to be strong and stay healthy by avoiding that sugar. Easier said than done, we know it.
Here are some festive and fun ways to make sure you and your kids stay eating healthy this month before reaching into that trick-or-treat bag for goodies.
Ingredients: cheese sticks, chives, and pretzels
Directions: Cut the fringe at the bottom of the cheese to form the broom bristles. Tie your small chive around the uncut portion of the cheese. Finally, put your pretzel on the top to make your broom handle, and get spooky.
Ingredients: clementine, bananas, chocolate chips, and celery
Directions: Have your kiddos make a little jack-o-lantern using a peeled clementine and putting a tiny celery stalk in the top. Peel the bananas and cut them in half. Add chocolate chips for eyes, and you’ve got yourself some ghosts!
Ingredients: pineapple, watermelon, any other fruit you want
Directions: Cut your melon like you’d cut your pumpkin, but this time you are going to want to save your “guts”. Cut up your other fruits along with your watermelon. Arrange them on your plate and snack away if you're not too "grossed out".
Ingredients: peppers of any color, broccoli, baby tomatoes, celery, mushrooms, carrots, lettuce, cucumber, cauliflower, and your favorite veggie dip
Directions: Cut your veggies into the appropriate lengths to make the bones of the skeleton. Arrange them in your veggie man formation. Grab and dip.
To keep your fresh produce from turning into an actual scary situation grab yourself some NatureSeal Fresh-Cut to help inhibit browning prior to eating.
