Tomorrow is Halloween and I am sure all the kids are looking forward to “Trick-or-Treating”. I remember when I was a kid and looked forward to the fun of wearing costumes and going door to door. I also remember all the candy. Here are a couple health treats you can make for your kids before they go out. They are from Terra’s Kitchen. They are easy and a nice treat for anytime. Enjoy!
CANDY CORN FRUIT SKEWERS
- White: pear, jicama, banana
- Orange: cantaloupe, apricot, mango
- Yellow: pineapple
Directions: Choose one of each color fruit. Cut progressively larger size triangles and thread onto lollipop sticks to look like oversize candy corn. Served chilled.
- Mini pretzels
Directions: Carefully peel kiwi with a vegetable peeler. Cut off a small lengthwise piece (the belly of the spider) so it sits flat on a plate. Break mini pretzels into curved pieces and insert 3 legs on each side. Carve out little indentations for eyes and serve. (You might also try raisins or chocolate chips, if you can figure out a way to make them stick!).
