Halloween, a time for spooky fun and an abundance of treats, is approaching, and parents may be wondering how to navigate this season of snacking.
With children snacking more frequently, a trend accelerated by the pandemic, it's crucial to strike a balance between enjoying the festive spirit and maintaining a healthy approach to snacks.
Kids' incessant snack cravings can be attributed to their small stomachs and high energy expenditure. Parents can help manage this by offering nutritious snack options and setting specific snack times. Even when it comes to Halloween candies, kids can be taught to savour sweets in moderation, emphasizing the importance of a well-rounded diet.
In addition, redefining snacks to include more balanced choices, such as fruit and cheese or vegetables with hummus, can transform snack time into a mini-meal, promoting healthier eating habits while indulging in the spirit of Halloween. The key is to find a balance that allows kids to enjoy their snacks and treats while maintaining overall health.
Our meal packs feature an assortment of seasonal mixed fruits, veggie sticks, dip, and a nutritious main meal. This ensures that enjoying one or two treats on Halloween is perfectly fine in addition to our wholesome meal options.
