We have the short and awesome tips on How to Have a Healthy Halloween! Halloween is a great time to have parties, visit friends/family, show off those awesome costumes and have fun!! These did bits can help make this fun time a little healthier for all those involved!
This one’s for parents and children. When we go long periods of time without eating, it typically causes us to grab what is most convenient and can actually cause us to overeat when the time comes. Having a balanced, healthy meal before trick-or-treating can help to reduce the urge to overeat.
Take advantage of the time to have a fun family event that is physically active for that perfect hallwoeen. Bring a water bottle, wear comfortable shoes and make it a game to visit as many houses or streets as you can!
Make sure to check the expiration dates and inspect any edible items before kids eat them. Be aware of food allergies and be careful to not let toddlers have any items that could be a choking hazard.
All you need is:
– 3 bananas
– ¾ cup low sugar yogurt
– 12 chocolate chips
– 6 wooden popsicle sticks
It is important to remember that Halloween is only one day a year. It’s what kids eat every day that has the most impact on nutrition and health. Rather than making candy and sweet treats off limits, serve healthy snacks first and bring out the sweet treats later. Teach them that a healthy halloween can be a fun halloween! Get them involved.
