Healthy and Halloween don't exactly go together, but it is possible. It's all about the presentation. For example, the mashed potato ghost in the photo above is both spooky and nutritious. It is simply mashed potatoes, swirled onto the plate and embellished with a green onion for a mouth and two black beans for eyes.
The Giant Spider snack in the photo above is so simple to put together, the kids can do it themselves. All you need is a bag of pretzel rods, baby carrots, and some raisins. Place two baby carrots in the center of a plate. Snap four rods in half and fashion them into spindly legs. Set two raisins atop the head for eyeballs.
Another healthy Halloween snack idea is "Slimy Smoothies". In a blender, blend together slices of honeydew melon, kiwi, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 cup of plain yogurt, and 4 ice cubes. Green, ghoulish, and good for you!
