Halloween is just around the corner! Make these healthy homemade Halloween treats with your kids.
It seems crazy–I feel like we just shipped the kids back to school! Halloween can be a tricky holiday for parents, especially when it comes to dealing with the candy overload. Because I have a great post on how to handle Halloween candy with kids, in this post we’re going to focus on homemade nutritious Halloween recipes that you can make with your kiddos. Fun, right?!
These are great for lunch boxes, or after school snacks, but can also be great for kids Halloween get–togethers and parties. Not only will they have fun whipping up some yummy Halloween-themed snacks, but involving kids in the kitchen boosts their self-confidence, help them foster a healthy relationship with food, and lets them develop lifelong cooking skills! And if you’ve got a picky eater on your hands – getting them involved in the kitchen is one of the BEST ways to help them explore and try new foods!!
So, I asked some of my fellow dietitian friends to share their favourite homemade Halloween treats. These spooky snacks look yummy, nutritious, and will be sure to add some fun to your kids’ lunch boxes. Enjoy!
Navigating the treats of Halloween can be tricky for both parents and kids.
