Healthy Halloween Dinner Foods
The last thing that most kids want to do on Halloween is to sit down and eat dinner.
I remember when I was a kid, I just wanted to run outside and get started on Trick-or-Treating!
My Mom knew that the combination of a kid with an empty stomach running around in the cold, and then filling up on sugar, was a terrible idea.
So, she started making fun Halloween themed meals each year, in order to pique our interest! My favorite was Mummy Dogs (hot dogs wrapped in Pillsbury Crescent roll dough, so that they baked around them like mummies. The recipe is below!
Here are some quick and easy ideas to get at least a small snack into your Trick-or-Treater before you head out. They are also perfect for a Halloween party:
Tomato Basil & Tortellini Soup With Bat Croutons
This Tomato-Basil & Tortellini Soup with Bat Croutons, from Foodlets, is a perfect fall soup. We love the festive croutons (courtesy of a bat-shaped cookie cutter).
Green Goblin Smoothies
Real Mom Nutrition‘s Green Goblin Smoothies are full of bananas, peaches, pineapple, and a secret green ingredient that many kids will find scary enough for Halloween–spinach!
