As an active chocoholic and a sugar fiend I have mixed feelings about Halloween. I mean on one hand – yum! But on the other – this cannot be good for you. And it definitely can’t be good for kids. So I started looking for healthy Halloween snacks – and there weren’t a ton. The best I was finding were monster teeth made with apples and marshmallows. Uh what? And after recently devouring a bag of skittles and not feeling so great afterwards, I decided I needed some better alternatives.
So I teamed up with My Fitness Pal to create some healthy Halloween treat ideas for kids (and grown ups too!). And I created a Healthy Halloween Pinterest board with some of the best ideas I found online. Happy Halloween!
I definitely devoured this batch of Monster Teeth after a run one morning because my body was craving protein asap. They are actually a really delicious snack besides being super creepy for Halloween. Speaking of, I think I need to start figuring out a costume asap. Any ideas?
What do you think of these healthy snack ideas? What do you feed your kids (and yourself!)for a healthy Halloween?
This weekend jam packed for me: engagement dinner, tons of blog cooking, Sunday Dinner with friends and football and studying for the MPRE so I can finally be admitted to the NY State Bar. Ugh. Hopefully there will be some sleeping too! For sneak previews, food pics and Oreo silliness don’t forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!
