Kids won’t feel tricked by these 3 healthy Halloween treats

Mummy Pizza

Mini Mummy Pizzas (recipe below)

I’ve pulled together some  Halloween recipes that are healthy, but still taste good enough to feel like a treat! They incorporate nourishing whole food ingredients, but also mix in some sweets so that kids don’t feel totally deprived. These snacks will distract little ones from the big bag of sugar they’ll collect on Halloween for at least a little while!

PUMPKIN PARFAIT

Pumpkin boosts nutrition by adding fiber and vitamins like A and C. Greek yogurt brings protein and fat to temper blood sugar spikes and keep kids feeling full and satisfied.

  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or more to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  • 1 package gummy worms

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, mix yogurt, pumpkin, honey, and pumpkin pie spice together.

  3. Top with gummy worms and serve chilled.
