15 Spooky Halloween Recipes Kids Love

These 15 Spooky Halloween Recipes Kids Love are the result of years of me desperately trying to find nutritious meals with which to tempt my family before they are greeted with onslaught of candy from trick or treating that is coming down the pike.

After all, Halloween is all about fun (ok, and it's about candy too). And given how every holiday seems to have a life that expands far beyond the day it's celebrated, Halloween can present some serious dietary challenges. In addition to trick-or-treating on the big night, your kids will likely be having Halloween parties at school and after school events, which means more candy. To help curb the sugar overload, you need to serve up healthier choices that are as equally fun and appealing as the sweets with which they're smitten.

This year, try some of these spooky snacks and treats. They're easy to make and, unlike what will end up in the trick or treat bags, contain ingredients you can actually pronounce! Many of these recipes are actually quite good for you, too. And even the sweeter ones are still made with better ingredients than your average store bought treat, so you can feel good about what you're feeding your family. Pro tip: if you fill everyone up on good stuff before the parties and trick or treating starts, maybe they'll have less room for candy! Maybe. A mom can dream, right? 

Tell me in the comments below, what are you and your kids dressing up as this year?!

    I turn to a vampire any time i want to. i become a vampire because of how people treat me, this world is a wicked world and not fair to any body. at the snack of my finger things are made happened. am now a powerful man and no one step on me without an apology goes free. i turn to human being also at any time i want to. and am one of the most dreaded man in my country. i become a vampire through the help of my friend who introduce me into a vampire kingdom by given me their email. if you want to become a powerful vampire kindly contact the vampire kingdom on their email [email protected]
