Halloween is full of treats but they don’t always have to be candy! Satisfy your sweet tooth or add a spooky spin to treats that the whole family will love! Made with fresh, always available greenhouse grown fruits & veggies, let us help you serve up some healthy Halloween fun!

Halloween is a spook-tacular day full of fright and delight. It’s a time to dress up, carve pumpkins, watch scary movies, and of course, enjoy some delicious treats. But candy is not the only way to satisfy your sweet tooth this Halloween! You can also balance your indulgence with some healthy options. With fresh greenhouse veggies and fruits, you can make healthy treats that are just as fun and flavorful, but with more nutrition and less sugar. Whether you’re planning to go trick-or-treating or stay at home with your family, you can celebrate a healthy Halloween!

Halloween is a great opportunity to show your kids that healthy food can be fun. You don’t have to replace their candy with cucumbers, but you can balance their treats with some nutritious and delicious fruits and veggies. One way to do that is to start the day by packing some spooky school lunch boxes with a healthy mix of nuts, cheese, lunch meat, and snacking veggies like Uno Bites™ Nano Cucumbers, Aurora Bites Mini Sweet Peppers, and Cloud 9® Bite-Sized Fruity Tomatoes. To make it even more fun, include some Munchie Monsters, Halloween stickers, and spider rings for a surprise at lunchtime.

A fresh spin on sweet treats –

While you’re packing some healthy snacks for your kids to take to school, you can also whip up some Strawberry Mummy Hand Pies for breakfast. These sweet and spooky treats are made with sustainably grown Sweet Blooms® Strawberries, which are delicately sweet every day of the year. Bite-sized, juicy, and hand-picked in small batches, they’re berriously delicious®.

These hand pies are easy to make with some pie crust, strawberry filling, and candy eyes that give these hand pies a fun mummified look that kids love. Make them early and enjoy them each morning leading up to Halloween. They are also a fun treat to send to school for classmates to also enjoy.

Frighteningly good –

Energy will be at an all-time high when the kids get home from school this Halloween. It’s the perfect time to offer them an after-school snack rich in vitamins.
