Healthy, Nutritional, Fun and Exciting Ideals for Children Parties
The time of year when children want to play and eat candy is also a time when diabetic children are left out of so many activities. Not any more!
Halloween is here, and it's time to party. Children who are diabetic or have special needs want to be a part of celebrations too. Having a party and inviting their friends over will lift their spirits and warm their hearts. Teaching children who are not diabetic how to eat health is a good thing.
Frozen Blood Yogurt Popsicle
- 2 kilos of plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup of milk or alternative
- 1/4 cup of honey or stevia
- 1 pint of frozen cherries
- Juice of one lemon
Note: For lactose tolerant children, leave out the milk and reduce the lemon juice. Any fruit may be used if cherries are not available.
Punch With Blood Frozen YogurtPut sugar-free 7-up in a large punch bowl. Freeze the above recipe in a round mold or if possible find a Halloween mold. Make sure the 7-up is very cold. Place the large frozen yogurt mold in the middle of the 7-up and let is melt slightly. Have some decorated Halloween cups to serve the punch in.

Chocolate Date Bars - Sugar FreeIn a food processor put the following:

- 4 ounces of unsweetened chocolate
- pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 cup of date paste or more as needed

Purchase small Halloween bags and orange and brown ribbon. In each small bag put a cassette tape of music for Halloween, some toasted pumpkin seeds and money. Money is the clincher here. When children have money, they forget about candy for sure.
Happy Halloween and may all the children of the world be happy this Halloween. Trick or Treat parties are fun and relaxing and all the treats above can be served at adult parties also.
