Happy Health[ier] Halloween


Hey Mamas - are you interested in learning a few tricks to help you keep rockin' as the healthy family you are during this time of year?

I LOVE to look for ways to let them enjoy a little tradition without inducing an immune + digestion system crash.  

So I thought I would share some great ways to create a fun, safe & healthier halloween season for your littles:
Diffuse beautiful fall spicy oils [that will also boost your child's immune system] 

Here are some more from the Halloween collection:
CLICK HERE to purchase essential oils 
Pumpkin everything: Roast pumpkins and find lots of creative recipes to use up the flesh/seeds. Serving soup/chili in mini roasted pumpkin bowls is fun!
Read a book each night to the glow of the lit pumpkins [or a plug in version]
Pumpkin carving fun: light some candles outside, eat soup in mugs, tunes on, fire going ... 

Another sweet outing idea a friend suggested is to visit a local retirement or nursing home. The residents love seeing the kids come by in their costumes, they often have treats waiting for the kids and it brings so much joy!
Know the 8 tips to make this Halloween safer for kids with food allergies. 
Be the home that gives out fun stuff like: 

❤ Stickers ❤ Pens ❤ Notepads ❤ Tattoos ❤ Bubbles ❤ Playdough ❤ Colouring Books ❤ Glow Sticks ❤ Raisin Boxes ❤ Pretzel Packs ❤ Organic Popcorn ❤ Mini Larabars ❤ Packs Dark Chocolate Squares ❤ Quinoa CookiesYummy Earth Organic Lollipops & Gummy Treats

You may have also heard about a the teal pumpkin...You paint one of your pumpkins to let kids in your hood know that you're handing out non-food treats! Love this!!!

And now for the genius idea...

Have you guys heard of The Switch Witch? This is the cutest! It's basically a 'candy currency' idea where after your kids have come home with their candy, they can choose a few of their fave pieces in then they toss all the rest into a large bucket/cauldren to be picked up by the Switch Witch. She then leaves for them a small gift in exchange. Boom! 

To make this successful - there is actually a poem (attached to the left) you can read to your kids leading up to Halloween (to tee up the big exchange)

Well...my kids didn't respond so well to the Switch Witch idea mostly because of the wording - so I put some peppermint oil on my temples and got to work.

Enjoy this HOL:FIT rendition:

Happy + Safe Halloween!
