Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s almost hard to believe that the summer was only a couple of months ago. As days start getting shorter and shorter, and our routines fill up with school runs and activities, it can be hard to keep up healthy habits – especially with trick or treating and Halloween parties getting in the way. Try some of these delicious and healthy Halloween-inspired recipes with your Super Troopers for some spooky snacks they won’t be able to resist.
Try slicing your favourite vegetables and dipping in this delicious hummus, or spread a little bit on some wholemeal toast for a healthy snack.
This traditional snack is a delicious way to incorporate celery, a great source of vitamin K, into your diet – although you might not like it if you’re afraid of creepy-crawlies!
You could also try swapping the peanut butter with your pumpkin hummus or another nut butter, and using almonds or dates instead of raisins.
These meringues are definitely more of a sweet treat than a healthy snack, but they make a great vegan alternative to the traditional egg-based recipe!
Why not try making these recipes with your tots this Halloween? It’s super fun getting your Super Troopers involved in the kitchen, and it’s a great way to teach them about healthy eating and nutrition, as well as to encourage them to try new and healthier foods. Let us know how you get on by sending pictures of your spooky masterpieces to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stick to your 5 a day
During the winter months, it’s important to eat lots of fruit and vegetables. So add them on to your usual meals.
