Are you looking for healthy Halloween treats that your kids will love?
Halloween is almost here with us, and every shop in town seems to have stocked more chocolate, lollies, and other not so healthy foods. Although this is a period of celebration and fun, it can be stressful for parents since your kids will always want the not so healthy snacks and treat that can cause cavities and other dental problems afterward. So, are you looking for healthy Halloween treats that your kids will love this season? Here are our top five picks.
A web pizza is a healthy treat that any kid out there will love. To prepare your web pizza, you will need pizza dough, at least one cup of homemade tomato sauce, sliced cheese and olives. Proceed to spread the tomato sauce over your pizza base and cut the cheese into smaller strips for the spider web. Place in a cobweb pattern and bake your pizza for approximately ten minutes in a hot oven. You can use the olives to create scary spiders.
Eyeballs on a Log
Another way to treat your kid is by putting cream cheese or nut butter in a stick of celery then top it up with candy eyeballs. Alternatively, you could also place a sizeable chocolate chip upside-down. Now melt your chocolate chips in a plastic bag and pipe out little spider legs.
Mandarin Orange Pumpkins
Fruits and vegetables are known to promote good oral health. Therefore, you can never go wrong with anything to do with fruits or veggies. Prepare a canning jar that can hold several oranges when peeled. After you peel your oranges, put all the slices in your jar and draw the classic jack-o-lantern face that almost every kid knows and loves.
Darkly Delicious Apples
Did you know that a combination of dark chocolate and apples create a powerful antioxidant that can help protect your kid’s teeth and heart? To prepare your darkly delicious apples, you will need at least four apples, one cup of dark chocolate chips or baking discs, sticks, parchment paper. Remove all the apple stems and insert the sticks into the top of the apples. Now melt your chocolate baking discs and slowly rotate each apple until all sides are covered in chocolate. Place it on a tray lined with wax paper and insert it in your fridge to cool.
Pumpkin & Ghosts
Do you want to scare your kid a little bit? Then you have to try the pumpkin & ghost treat. You will need clementine, bananas, celery, and raisins. Peel you clementines and remove the core. Slice your celery into skinny strips and then insert them into the middle of your clementine. Peel and cut your bananas in half. Push two raisins into your banana for eyes and another one for the mouth.
