It’s that time of the year again! Salty treats, sugary sweets and fattening eats are the main course for Halloween. But these foods can be terrifying to your healthy diet. Doesn’t that give you the spooks?
Even scarier is that childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years, increasing by 20% in children aged 6-11. Type II Diabetes has been on the rise since the early 2000s and shows no signs of slowing. So take control of your kids’ diet and ensure they’re making healthy decisions this Halloween.
To get you started on the right foot, we’ve got a few healthy snack ideas that will keep the sugar goblins at bay.
For a healthier snack, try these yummy apple bites:
Apple Bites (adapted from Spoonful)
Just quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter, then press slivered almonds in place for teeth. Try sprinkling a bit of GlucAffect® on the apples for a sweet cinnamon taste!
Or try this healthy apple pie recipe using Reliv products.
