Halloween can be a frightfully fun holiday—dressing up in costumes, decorating the house, enjoying the cooler fall weather—but it can also be frightfully unhealthy. Next week plenty of kids will be trick-or-treating and plenty of adults will be finishing off any candy that doesn’t get handed out to the witches and warlocks that stop by, but there is no reason Halloween can’t be both fun and healthy.
You can easily get into the spirit of Halloween with tricks and treats that don’t involve candy. To give you ideas on how to celebrate a healthy Halloween, we’ve started a new Pinterest board with fun healthy treats that can be incorporated into school celebrations, Halloween party menus, or meals leading up to Halloween!
What are your family’s Halloween plans? What are your strategies for keeping Halloween both fun and healthy?
