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

“This is EXACTLY the type of service and experience we had always envisioned for our patients at MSK Koch!  Thank you Chef Ryan for going out of your way for this patient and all patients and staff!”

“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 will say that CulinArt has always been a very collaborative partner to T. Rowe Price, listening to our current needs and future goals and suggesting realistic and achievable strategies to meet those goals.  2020 was obviously no exception.  CulinArt also altered other areas of our OCS and pantry programs to create safer environments for all our associates. We can only thank you for your continued flexibility and innovative ideas through these difficult times.”

“I wanted to let you know that for this entire school year I have been so well fed! I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE all the diversity of salad choices we have each day and the amazing entrees.  My favorites are the carnitas, chili, curry, and cajun chicken days.  I am so grateful for all the care that goes into the food because I know I do not eat enough vegetables or balanced meals without you and your crew's work.  Thank you so much!  You take such great care of us!!”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“We were totally impressed by the presentation and care in which these new team members were brought into the CulinArt family. So happy we made the decision to choose CulinArt Group.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”
