Fall Apple Snack Board


Halloween is a delightful season of treats and joy! This concept is all about embracing the fun of Halloween sweets in a way that adds variety and exploration to snack time.

Embracing Food Neutrality:

Our Apple Snack Board is a celebration of all foods. It’s a playful way to explore different flavors and textures without focusing on the unhelpful categorization of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ foods.

Dietitian Tip:

Offering a variety of whatever foods at meal and snack times helps your child practice food neutrality and create a healthy relationship with food ! 🎃

The Snack Board Experience:

  • Start with Halloween Candy: Choose your favorite candies, focusing on those that can be cut up or melted into dips. This is a fantastic way to experiment with textures and flavors.
  • Pair with Apples and Dips: Apples are a classic fruit, perfect for pairing with a variety of dips. We suggest Greek yogurt and peanut butter for a creamy, satisfying experience.
  • Get Creative: Encourage your child to participate in creating their favorite flavor combinations. This is a fun opportunity for them to explore their tastes and preferences.
  • Celebrating Variety: By adding different elements like fruits, yogurt, and peanut butter, we’re not just enjoying candy but also celebrating the joy of variety in our snacks.
