Usually when we think of Halloween, we think of candy. Allowing children to have some sugar is okay, but too much can be dangerous. It's important to establish healthy eating habits when children are young. Trick-or-treating on an empty stomach can make it possible for them to binge on sugar, so start Halloween night with some healthy snacks.
Remember that healthy snacks don't have to be boring! Get into the Halloween spirit by making classic characters out of fruits, like Frankenstein's monster pictured above. Many snacks are easy enough for a child to make as long as they are being supervised and assisted when using kitchen utensils. It's no secret that kids have vivid imaginations, so helping in the kitchen could be an opportunity to allow their creativity to flow.
Trick-or-treating means your kids will be walking around and burning a lot of energy, so it's important to keep them nourished and give them a health boost before indulging in some sugary sweets.
