Healthy Halloween Tips

Halloween is an exciting, spooky, and tasty way to kick off the holiday season. Are you all about the tricks, or all about the treats? Whether you are more excited about the festive costumes and jack-o-lanterns or sweet and delicious candy, check out these tips to add fun yet healthful spins to your Halloween.

  • Don’t forget dinner: try making some Halloween themed meals for a festive day of food. Jack-o-lantern stuffed peppers, gingerbread houses, monster mashed potatoes, spooky spaghetti, and ghost cupcakes are fun for the whole family.
  • Get festive: this holiday is celebrated for many reasons besides candy. Get involved in Halloween and fall activities like pumpkin carving, hayrides, corn mazes, spooky movies, and especially the costumes!
  • Candy lasts forever. Okay, maybe not FOREVER, but it has a pretty long shelf life. Listen to your body, try not to get a stomach ache, and know that the candy will still be there for you to enjoy tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day…
  • The best snacks come in small packages. Offer the small, “fun-size” versions of candy. This will help to acknowledge some hunger and fullness cues and allow you to try more than one type of candy!
  • Pick your favorites: eat the candy you enjoy! Consider donating the extra candy to a local shelter or using it for art and baking creations!
  • Get moving: trick-or-treating is a wonderful family activity and a great way to get some fresh fall air and spend time with friends.

To ensure a fun, healthy, and safe Halloween, try taking part of the Teal Pumpkin Project. There are a wide variety of food allergies these days ranging from nuts, dairy, soy and more. It’s important to raise awareness of these allergies to keep Halloween safe and fun for everyone.

  • Be a part of the Teal Pumpkin Project by:
  • Painting a pumpkin with a teal color and placing it on your front doorstep for all trick-or-treaters to see you are an allergy free house
  • Hand out non-food treats to ensure safety for all with potential allergies.
  • Spread the word about the project!

All in all, enjoy and celebrate this holiday! Partake in all the fun activities Halloween has to offer!

What our clients are saying

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“The CulinArt team has been great to work with and has been super flexible. Having worked with other dining services at different institutions, having a dining team that is open to menu changes has been a great resource for our events. ”

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”
