Healthy Festive Fall Treats

As soon as October hits, it seems that the candy corn, rice crispy treats, pumpkin rolls and other seasonal treats are everywhere. I am not completely opposed to my daughter having anything with sugar, but I like to keep it as minimal as possible. 

So a few weeks ago when I was asked to bring snacks to a playgroup, I opted out of the traditional candy corn and fall cookies and instead made some fruity pumpkins. They are easy to make and every child loves a good Mandarin orange (or in this case, Halos). The celery even adds in a bit of vegetable if you can convince your child to eat the "pumpkin stem"!

Apples are also a great way to make a sweet but low sugar treat for your kids!

Here are a few of my favorite Fall apple recipes:

Simply core the apples and place some granola/oats with honey, nuts, and raisins and slow cook until tender!

I hope this gives you some candy and cookie alternatives for the Holiday season! Please share your own recipes and ideas for healthy Fall treats in the comments!
