Happy Healthy Halloween!

Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year, adored by both kids and adults alike! For just one day, we look forward to dressing up, eating treats, watching scary movies, and maybe creeping out the neighbors. If you’re planning to host a spooky party with a small group of friends or take the kids out trick-or-treating to neighbors, we’ve assembled some of our favorite Healthy Halloween recipes and top 5 tips that will help you make the most out of Halloween! (And watch the waistline)

Here are 5 tips on how to celebrate a safe and healthy Halloween: 

#1: Make your own treats

Get creative with the kids and make your own healthy treats and snacks! Add some nutritional value by including fruits, veggies, or nuts. Here are some tasty recipe ideas to help get you started!

#2: Play games

Halloween doesn’t have to be all about candy! The kids can still have fun if you plan a fun activity for them to enjoy, such as a costume parade, monster tag, or a zombie dance party.

#3: Hand out non-sugary snacks

There are plenty of non-sugary snack options to choose from – such as animal crackers, granola bars, apples, & trail mix. You can always opt to hand out toys that promote getting active, such as balls, frisbees, jump rope, & sidewalk chalk. 

#4: Walk, don’t drive

 We all know that walking is a great exercise for kids and adults alike! The door-to-door approach will keep kids active and tire them out when Halloween comes to an end. Be sure to bundle up for the season! 

#5: Limit leftover candy

 Wondering what to do with all that leftover candy? Keep your favorite treats and store the rest. The saying goes, out of sight, out of mind. Put the candy away and encourage mindful enjoyment of your favorite stash.
