As usual, the kids are going to get overloaded with treats this Halloween. So here is a selection of healthy Halloween treats that your kids will enjoy helping to create.
Jack O’Lantern Clementines
This one is an easy one. Gather a bunch of clementines and draw Jack O’Lantern faces on each one. Great to throw into your child’s lunch kit for school!
Create Your Own Pumpkin Patch
Another easy one. Peel a bunch of clementines, then add a piece of celery into the top of each one for a stem.
**The kids gobbled them as we were preparing them!
Ghostly Frozen Banana Treats
This one requires a little bit more time, but the kids will love them. Take a ripe banana, cut in half (at an angle) and set them on a popsicle stick. Add little pieces of raisins for the eyes and place in the freezer.
Creepy Crawly Spiders
Take a date and cut in half for the body. Next, cut some long, thin pieces of fruit leather for the legs. Place sesame or hemp seeds for the eyes. There you have it – an edible arachnid!
Have fun making your own creations!
