It’s a fright trying to avoid scary GMOs, wasteful packaging, and spooky high fructose corn syrup around Halloween. What’s a health conscious Mummy or Daddy to do? Never fear– Greenling’s got your back! We asked our Facebook fans for some advice for keeping Halloween healthy and safe for their special diet kiddos- here’s what they said:
Artemis K., whose son has Type 1 Diabetes, says, “Please don’t hand out just candy! Other options are nickels or quarters, tattoos, rings, toothbrushes, be creative!”
Mary Alice K. recommends additional, non-sweet treats. “I feature a mix of candy along with other fun trinkets like themed-pencils, sidewalk chalk, stickers, glow sticks, etc.”
Local blogger Evin C. (Food Good Laundry Bad) has been Instagramming a series of spooky lunchbox ideas for her food dye-free son. Her recipe for a lunchbox “mummy” calls for grass-fed hot dogs and organic tortillas, instead of the trans-fat filled crescent roll dough found in many versions of the treat. Scroll down for the full recipe and a picture! She also created “ghosts” out of string cheese sticks by using a marker to draw a scary face on the side of the packaging.
