Every year the average American consumes approximately 3.4 pounds of candy, the equivalent of 7,000 calories, over Halloween. With all the extra sugary treats and calories from trick-or-treating and classroom parties, making healthier meals or snacks is a must.
These recipes use fun Halloween colors and spooky faces to make sure children eat their fruits and vegetables before a long night of collecting candy. The best part about these recipes is they will make sure everyone is eating a healthy meal– some will even satisfy a sweet tooth without the candy!
