Ah, Halloween. Such a fun and exciting holiday for the kids, but it can be difficult to navigate as a parent trying to feed the family healthy, nutritious foods. What’s a parent to do?

My philosophy is, let kids be kids. Sure, I will feed my kids as many vegetables and fruits and healthy proteins as I can at home, but when it comes to special occasions like birthday parties or Halloween, I let them enjoy it. I just follow up Halloween night with a super nutritious breakfast. ;)

The downside of Halloween is that it’s not just one night of candy – you’re stuck with tons of leftover candy and nothing to do with it! Not until now. Put that leftover candy to good use and make a semi-healthy treat the kids will love.

I say semi-healthy because we’re at least using a whole-wheat crust and yogurt in here. The candy is what makes it a special treat! You can use any candy you have in the house, but of course we’re partial to chocolate. I hope you and the kids enjoy this Halloween candy pizza!

witches soup horizontalMy kids love everything about Halloween and love creepy and spooky snacks and foods. Serving them cream cheese and olive “eyeballs” in tomato soup always gets them excited. I love that the kids are eating healthy tomato soup, and the cream cheese and olive not only add a touch of Halloween but also a nice creaminess to the soup. This can be a really fast dinner if you are using your favorite real-ingredient tomato soup or a more hearty dinner if you make your own tomato soup and add a slice of fresh bread.

If you want or need to prep ahead, simply refrigerate the cream cheese balls in a covered container and add the olive slice just before adding it to the soup.
