Inspiration for a healthy Halloween
Halloween doesn’t have to be gruesomely sugary. In fact it is quite possible to ‘trick or treat’ your kids to a healthy snack or meal that still has hair-raising potential. Think: phantom pizzas, a severed hand or ghostly fruit snacks.
Have a gander through our ghoulish gallery of healthy halloween food ideas made from GREEN and Everyday food choices and get inspired!
Veggie snacks with homemade hommus
Cauldrons of Crudite
Jack-o-lantern chips – handcut oven baked sweet potato
(yes, they are labour intensive but were a big hit!)
Wholemeal pita pizzas with reduced fat cheese
A frighteningly interactive dinner idea packed with veggies! Another way to sneak in additional vegetables is to use our HKA tomato sauce as a base. Keep in mind that, if in NSW, the Food and Drink Criteria portion size limit for canteen-made pizza is 250g (primary) or 350g (secondary).
Sand-witches – punny jaffle with reduced salt baked beans.
Use wholemeal bread to GREEN-it-up and ensure it’s Everyday!

for this and the following ideas and images!)
Melon Monster – a great way to serve fruit in class or at a party.
Fruit that frightens – sunflower seed apple jaws, mand-o-lantern and banana ghosts.
