Halloween is just around the corner and we all know what that means: pumpkin carvings, costume parties and sugary treats anywhere and everywhere! Even though it’s really hard to resist the temptation of binging on Halloween trick-or-treat candies, there is actually a way to trick your sweet tooth into eating healthy treats without the risk of cavities.
If you’re throwing a Halloween party, here are some low sugar suggestions for sweet and savory treats that can still make the occasion fun and festive.
Your kids will love these incredibly simple to make ghosts.Best of all, you only need two ingredients to make them: bananas and white chocolate chips. Okay, maybe three – you may want to add a couple of raisins for the eyes to make them look a bit more frightening!
Sliced apple, peanut butter and almonds make perfect scary teeth. Besides being healthy and delicious, making these snacks is as much fun as eating them! You can even use a slice of fresh strawberry to make a tongue stick out!
Jack-o’-Lantern Fruit Cups
Decorating your house and yard with scary Jack o’-Lantern pumpkins is a well known tradition during every Halloween season. Only this time you can add some more color and fun by carving the face into navel oranges. Slice off the tops of the oranges, remove the pulp, cut out a jack-o’-lantern face, and fill it with mixed berries. Your guests will love it!
Cheese and Pretzel Broomsticks
Halloween treats don’t always have to be sweet. With these edible broomsticks made of pretzels and cheese, the fun is guaranteed! They will most certainly be “swooped” from your buffet in no time.
A friendly reminder: Whether you’re enjoying sweet or savory treats this Halloween season, do not forget to brush your teeth! It is vital to keep up with your and your kids’ brushing routine, especially after late night trick-or-treating snacks.
