Halloween is a fun time to have a small gathering of toddlers for a celebration. Healthy snacks are a requirement when it comes to toddler parties! Whether it’s a fun-filled gathering with a bunch of little ones for Halloween or a birthday party, Earth’s Best is excited to provide a multitude of festive and nutritious tips to host a party this month!
- Looking for healthy snacks to serve? Children actually love strawberries, bananas, grapes, and apple slices. Spice things up by cutting fruits into fun bite-sized shapes.
- Kids will expect to go home with a favor bag. Shift the focus away from an unhealthy bag of snacks by making one of the party activities a creation to make and take home. Try a craft table where children can make their own paper bag puppets or handprint crafts.
- For healthy and spill proof beverages, offer individual juice boxes of Earth’s Best Organic Juices or Earth’s Best Kidz 2% Reduced Fat Milk.
- Make a frozen cake out of fat free frozen yogurt or fat free ice cream. Serve fat free ice cream cut out into cookie cutter shapes. (Soften ice cream, spread out onto flat jellyroll pan, refreeze until hard, and using desired cookie cutter shapes, cut out individual serving size ice-cream treats. You can decorate them with sprinkles, or raisins, peanuts, etc.)
- Have your child create the decorations for his/her own party! Let your child make drawings and assist them in cutting construction paper into fun wall decorations. Don’t forget to add a little bit of sparkle with glitter!
- Check out “Have A Happy Healthy Birthday” for additional tips!
This time of year brings about many, many opportunities for parties with kids! Be sure to get some Earth’s Best products to keep on hand for not only the parties, but for the unexpected guests and even just for lazy days at home with the kids! Enjoy your celebrations! Happy Fall!!
