Healthier Treats This Halloween!
Earlier this week, we talked about the Teal Pumpkin Project and how it is making it possible for kids with food allergies to take part in the fun of Halloween. Whether your kids have allergies or not, we can all agree that the typical Halloween treats and snacks leave a lot to be desired! Between the artificial colors/dyes and the loads of sugar, many parents are looking for healthier alternatives.
To do our part, our culinary team had some fun in the Previ Kitchen creating a trio of not-so-scary treats:
Banana Ghosts, String Cheese Brooms, & Tangerine Pumpkins
We also compiled a list of healthy treats and snacks from around the web that will be perfect to create with your kids in the days leading up to Halloween or as a fun treat in their lunchboxes:
Pumpkin Patch Dippers from Family Fun Magazine
Spooky Spider Snacks from Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons
Apple Bites from Oh She Glows
Healthy Candy Corn Snack from Family Fresh Meals (replace whipped cream with whipped coconut milk to make it dairy free)
Pumpkin Spice Granola from Gimme Some Oven
And if you are looking for candy options that are dye- and high fructose corn syrup-free for trick-or-treaters, try these options:
Have a happy and healthy Halloween everyone!!
