Halloween Treats.....

Here are some ideas to have fun with food to celebrate Halloween: Clementine "pumpkin", mummy pizzas and finger food veggie dip.....all of these were super easy: hummus with carrots, clementine with a pretzel stick, whole wheat English muffin with pizza sauce, string cheese torn into strips and a couple of black olives, bake at 350F until cheese is melted. 

I got these ideas from the following website. Here is the link if you would to see their other great suggestions:


For a sweeter treat, I used cookie cutters to cut out slices of whole wheat bread and frosted with cream cheese or pumpkin cream cheese. I used raisins and chocolate chips to decorate. Halloween doesn't have to be a nutrition nightmare. On the actual day, a enjoy some traditional treats. The day after, have your kids pick out a few pieces of their favorite candy for occasional treats and  "buy" back the rest for a few bucks. Happily dispose of the remaining candy in the trash.
