6 Healthy Halloween Treats for Kids

Aside from starting with the letter H, Halloween and health don’t have much in common. The upcoming candy-filled holiday often results in your kids loading up on sugar, which isn’t good for them or fun for you.

Try these cute, spooky and downright tasty treats to get kids excited about eating healthy on Halloween.

Monster Teeth

Directions:

Section each apple and then sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Spread about 1 tsp. of peanut butter on each slice. Stick 4-6 yogurt-covered berries on an angle in the peanut butter, then place a second peanut butter-covered apple slice on top. (You may need to secure with a toothpick or extra peanut butter.)

Cool for 1 hour in the refrigerator before serving.

Creepy-crawly sandwich idea can work with turkey, ham and cheese, even tuna salad. Try olives or raisins for “eyes” with yummy filling.
