Kids will be kids and Halloween is, well, Halloween. As a parent, you can stay committed to eating real foods without making your kids feel alienated or like they’re missing out on the fun. Here’s how.
While this solution doesn’t completely keep kids eating real during Halloween, it helps ensure they are not eating GMOs and chemical ingredients that are made in a lab.
Want to make sure your kids eat food that is made with whole ingredients during Halloween? Try making homemade popcorn balls or chocolate drizzled popcorn as treats. Start a baking project from scratch using whole flours, gluten free alternatives, bananas/honey/agave nectar as an alternative to sugar and involve the kids. It’s fun and the results can be delicious.
There are many real food options that let you enjoy all the holiday seasons, even Halloween. Check out real food recipes online (visit marthastewart.com for inspiration). Staying healthy takes some work, but you most certainly can enjoy treats while avoiding things that are really bad for you.
Happy Eat Real Halloween!
