You don’t often hear the phrase “healthy Halloween.” Ask kids what their favorite part of Halloween is and most of them will answer “CANDY!”. Truth being told, this mom has a pretty demanding sweet tooth so I too look forward to some sweet treats this time of year. Like most holidays, Halloween has expanded to be more than a day-long celebration. As I walk through my neighborhood and see house after house decorated with cobwebs, Happy Halloween flags, and skeletons dangling from trees, I realize that Halloween is now celebrated throughout the month of October. That’s a LOT of candy.
So, whether you are helping out with a party at school, hosting one at home, or just enjoy celebrating this fun holiday with your family, I wanted to give you some non-candy treats you can enjoy so that you can still fit into your costume on Halloween and have strong, healthy teeth to tackle those Bit-O-Honeys. Here are the best healthy Halloween treats from around the web.
Here are some fun Halloween-themed meals to serve up in honor of this spooky holiday.
