  • Happy Halloween!

    Happy Halloween!

    It's that time of the year again for ghosts and goblins to take to the streets for Halloween fun and a whole lot of candy consumption. Whether you are a Count Chockula or a ghostly gummy fanatic, Halloween is proven to have something to satisfy your sweet tooth. Let's take a haunted ride through your Halloween night and talk about how to have a great time while staying as healthy as can be.

    It's 5:00 pm on Halloween evening, and the festivities are about to take off, but there is one thing to tackle before hitting the streets, and that is dinner. Healthy eating for kids is even more important on Halloween, since a hungry child will only lead to more candy noshing on the road. But include this in the celebration, and spook up your meal. Make sandwiches and use Halloween cookie cutters and serve the ghostly sandwiches with soup served out of a creepy cauldron. Soup and sandwiches aren't your thing? Let your kid chef get creative in coming up with a Halloween themed dinner that will suit your family.
