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!
