Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean you have to forget about eating right. Whether you are planning a Halloween party for adults or kids, put out a mix of healthy treats alongside the traditional, not-so-healthy favorites. Here are a few festive and fun Halloween snack ideas:
Trail Mix – This is a mix of snack foods that is easy to grab in between party festivities. Raisins, nuts, cereals, and any other dry foods can be mixed together.
Celery and carrot skeleton – Arrange thin strips of celery and carrots to create a skeleton body on a plate. A low-fat cheese ball can be used for the skull, with raisins filling the eye socket holes.
Pumpkin seeds – Save the seeds after carving those pumpkins! Roasted pumpkin seeds are a great and festive snack. Lay them flat on a baking sheet and roast them in a 400 degree oven.
Caramel apples – Slice apples for easy eating, place them in individual bowls and drizzle caramel over the top. A little caramel goes a long way, and it keeps the extra calories and sugar at a minimum.
Banana ghosts – Take peeled bananas, cut them in half and place two small chocolate chips for the ghost’s eyes and a larger chip for the mouth.
Clementine pumpkins – Peeled clementines look like adorable, delicious pumpkins when a small piece of celery is placed on top to look like a pumpkin’s stem.
What will you and your kids eat this Halloween? Candy is okay in moderation, but let the majority of the snacks you enjoy be of a healthier variety so you can stay on-track with your weight loss.
