There are no good or bad foods, but some should be eaten more than others.

The best way to make sure that you get a healthy, balanced diet is to eat a wide variety of foods every day!                        



Kids will get plenty of candy trick-or-treating.  Try to keep focus on fun.

Instead of candy, try small toys like:  temporary tattoos, stickers, small plastic spiders or ghosts, spooky plastic rings or false teeth.  Or decorate pillowcases or bags for trick-or-treating.


Healthy Party Snacks:

Apple Cider

Apples with caramel or yogurt dip

Pumpkin dip and graham crackers

Roasted pumpkin seeds

Snack cups of canned peaches or mandarin oranges (canned in juice or light syrup)

Oranges, cantaloupes, tangerines, mangos, or dried peaches

Carrots with low-fat dressing

Use Halloween cookie cutters to make sandwiches or fruit look frightfully
