    Trick or Treat Yourself….

    Say goodbye to the sugar-fuelled ghosts of Halloweens past. Here are three spooktacularly healthy Halloween snacks that will keep the kids happy without sending them into a hyperactive overdrive.

    Munchy Apple Minions

    An apple a day keeps the monsters away. These munchy apple monsters are fun to make with the kids (and an easy way to get them eating more fruit!).

    The Recipe:

    Ingredients:

    • 2 green apples, each quartered
    • peanut butter
    • 32 sunflower seeds
    • 3 strawberries, sliced
    • 1-2 sugar eyes per monster

    Method:

    1. Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth.
    2. Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of peanut butter.
    3. Stick 4 sunflower seeds into the top of the mouth like jagged little teeth.
    4. Add 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth – it’s the tongue.
    5. Add a dot of peanut butter to each eye and stick onto the apple above the mouth.

    Boo-nanas

    These banana pops are a great alternative to sugar-filled ice creams and lollipops. If you want to go totally refined sugar-free, but keep things delicious, use Greek yoghurt instead of white chocolate.

    The Fire-Breathing Melon Monster

    Here’s a fruity centrepiece your kids will love.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 Watermelon, chopped into cubes
    • Pineapple, chopped into cubes

    Method:

    1. Cut the face you’d like on your watermelon
    2. Scoop out the melon and cut into pieces
    3. Cut 3 piece of pineapple into pieces
    4. Arrange the pieces so they look like fire coming out of the Monster’s mouth
