Halloween will be here soon and with it lots of candy. Trying to steer clear of Halloween candy may be difficult but stocking your house with lots of festive treats that aren’t as sugary will let you celebrate the holiday while curbing your sweet tooth.
One way to do this is to start dressing up your daily fruit. Below are some ideas for homemade Halloween treats. These are fun to do with your kids and fun to show off to your guests at a Halloween themed party.
Here are some simple tips to not overdo the candy:
- Combine carbohydrates and proteins together in snacks and meals to keep you full before going out trick-or-treating
- Get creative with fruit by adding peanut butter or eating it with a cheese stick
- Buy candy in bite-sized pieces
