A few simple and healthy Halloween snack ideas

Filed under: ,

Of any of the many food-focused holidays coming up over the next few months, I find Halloween is the most dangerous when it comes to packing on the pounds. All of those chocolates and candies are delicious, but they're not exactly healthy. Sure a few are OK, but Halloween treats tend to be consumed in large quantities.

If you're throwing a Halloween party for your kids and their friends and want to offer some healthy food alternatives, or if you're just looking to find some non-candy food ideas, take a look at some of the simple snacks offered here. The page includes recipes for healthy treats like Spooky Honey Popcorn Balls, Spicy Pretzels, Caramel Honey Apples and Spicy Roasted Soybeans.

The kids will have plenty of opportunities to chow down on mini-candy bars and other sweets this Halloween, so it's not a bad idea to make sure they get something nutritious too.
