Halloween is definitely the season for too much candy and an overload of sugar. No matter how hard we try we just can't seem to avoid it. There are some things you can do. If you are having a party at home or at school, why not focus on some Halloween type snacks that are good for you and fun too!
These ideas are gluten free/ grain free and can be made vegan.
Gail also served these adorable bananas made into ghosts and these little tangerines made into pumpkins with just a piece of celery for the stem. She used dark chocolate chips for the eyes. She said she just pressed them in and they stuck.
Along with some bowls of nuts, popcorn, and grapes, cheese and crackers-
we had a fun afternoon with no candy!
