As the nights grow darker, the shadows lengthen and thoughts turn to ghouls and other such scary creatures – be prepared to counteract the sugar attack!

Halloween 003


Try our top 3 ideas to calm the sugar crazed Halloween zombies in your house:

  1. Carve a Jack-o-Lantern – scare off those trick-or-treaters! 

Then don’t just throw out all the goodness from your pumpkin – it gets that fantastic orange colour from beta-carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body. In fact it is one of the highest sources of vitamin A which is crucial for healthy skin, mucus membranes, immunity and vision. Fruit is also a great source of vitamins C and E.

Use the flesh to create a spicy pumpkin curry – great to ward-off any autumnal chills, or make a scrumptious purée, sweeten it with dates and pour over porridge for a tasty breakfast treat.

  1. Create a Banana Ghost

Halloween 001

Peel your banana, cut it in the middle at an angle and put on a lolly stick – dip in yoghurt, add a couple of chocolate chips for eyes, freeze and they are good to go.

Bananas are a great source of fibre and contain vitamin B6, vitamin C, and potassium. Potassium plays an important role in helping to decrease the risk of high blood pressure and strokes.

  1. Conjure up a Fruity Pumpkin

Even quicker to create – peel your satsuma and arrange on a plate, add a bit of cucumber or grape for the stalk – it couldn’t be simpler!

Satsuma’s are high in vitamin C, which will help safeguard you from coughs and colds.
