Halloween is right around the corner, and while it may look a bit different than most years, there are so many fun ways to celebrate! We’re sharing a Healthy Halloween snack board that the whole family will enjoy, plus how to go about customizing a snack board using all of your favorite Halloween treats made healthy.
How to Make a Healthy Halloween Snack Board
This year, we made a Halloween snack board using not only some of our favorite healthier sweets but plenty of healthy snacks that double as festive treats this time of year.
Here are some of the ingredients we featured in our snack board this year.
Healthier Lower Sugar Candy
Halloween is traditionally all about candy and you don’t have to completely avoid it in order to celebrate this sweet holiday a bit healthier — you can actually find some lower sugar candy at places like Whole Foods.
Fruits & Veggies
When putting together your snack board, think of some fiber-rich foods to add to the mix.
Here are some of the nutritious fiber-rich foods we used that also happen to be perfectly festive for this time of year.
- Carrot sticks
