Simple and Healthy Treats for Halloween or Anytime!
Finding and serving healthy Halloween treats for a classroom party is getting easier for parents thanks to the growing awareness of the need to promote health.
October is the start of candy season. Each year store shelves are filled with candy and treats, tempting children and adults with sugar, fat and high calories.
With more and more parents and schools becoming aware of the need to promote health and wellness in children, Halloween treats are turning into healthier options.
Here are some of my recipes for healthier party treats.
Add food coloring to milk or water to make goblin blood (or witch’s blood, bat blood etc..) for a fun Halloween drink. You may also add a peppermint stick for flavor.
Carrots – Peeled and sliced into circles.
Olives – black cut in half or use raisins
Top each carrot slice with a small amount of cream cheese. Press half an olive or raisin into the center.
Peanut Butter (make sure there are no peanut allergies!)
Pretzel sticks – small
Sprinkles – Halloween
Spread a small amount of peanut butter on a Ritz cracker. Cover with a second Ritz cracker to make spider body. Insert pretzel sticks into the peanut butter, 4 on each side to make 8 legs. Add a small amount of peanut butter on the top cracker and sprinkle with sprinkles. add 2 raisins for the eyes.
These recipe’s can also be used as an edible party craft. The kids love to make their own spiders and eye balls!
