What kid doesn't love Halloween? They get to dress up, go trick-or-treating and eat candy all night long! But what if those treats being handed out weren't made of sugar, sugar and more sugar? What if those treats were still sweet and delicious but paired with fiber, protein and other good-for-you 'stuff' that helps your body process the sugar... wouldn't that be ideal? Well look no further, we've got a list of fun and spooky ideas to get those creative minds turning, as well as a sweet deal on Breakfast Cookie Minis that are the perfect size for goodie bags!

This fun and simple activity calls for cucumbers, bell peppers and an assortment of cut veggies. Cut your cucumber into discs, then slice part way in the middle to insert a bell pepper tongue. Place empty faces at a station with hummus as the 'glue' and decorating options - let the kiddos go to town! Details here
These creepy eyeballs are easily made with Babybel Cheese, sliced olives and a little ketchup or food dye. Details here
