I love Halloween so much. It’s my favorite. I don’t understand why we all can’t have the day off. And the day after off. That would be ideal. Every year we have friends over for a pre-trick or treating party. At these parties, I stuff those kids with tons of healthy food so they have less room for candy later. The best part is that they have so much fun hanging out with their buds and making all these healthy treats, they don’t even know THAT I’M TRICKING THEM INTO EATING LESS CANDY. Mwaaaa haaaa haa!!!!
Sometimes our pre-party is more fun than the actual trick or treating. It’s also a great alternative if you can’t (or don’t want to) go trick or treating with your kids. Here are some of the things I make and some things I found on Pinterest and tried for the first time. After I made the whole spread, I had a tasting panel of 6 hungry kids over to try everything out. Not to sound braggy or anything, but they loved it.
For even more healthy Halloween-themed treats, you can check out my Pinterest board.
Let’s get started!
