Halloween the Healthy Way

Pumpkins_Feldman

Halloween is just around the corner. Spooky goblins and wicked witches will soon  be parading down your streets. There will be Halloween school feasts, Halloween parties with friends and even Halloween festivals. What are parents to do if they want their wee ones to stay away from all that sweet stuff?

Make sure that during this time, your family is fed wholesome clean food, loaded with minerals and other assorted nutrients to help them stay strong and healthy.   Sugar can be harmful, throw off the body’s homeostasis and result in other significant consequences. More importantly, according to the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,” sugar can suppress the immune system. Instead of loading up on sugar, let’s share a simple and fun recipe so our kids maintain their health and wellness. 

Pumpkin Look-Alikes

Ingredients:

1 bag of Cuties – tangerines or mandarins will also work well

4 stalks of celery

Directions:

1. Right before serving, peel all oranges.                Conversely, store them in an airtight container.   

2. Cut the celery in half lengthwise and chop into 1-inch pieces.

3. Place in the top of the orange.

4. Just as easy as that, you have cute Halloween pumpkin treats.

Here’s to your health!
