Halloween is all the kids have been talking about for the past few weeks. With their costumes arriving in the mail last week, they’ve been begging each and every day to try them on, just one more time. When Ryder was two years old, we started a tradition on Halloween day, to meet some friends in Tribeca for an evening of trick or treating. Along the way, all of the stores in the neighborhood seem to put on quite the production for our kiddies. Store owners dress up, Halloween decor overflows into the streets, and even the restaurants will hand out treats, including hot cider for the adults.
The kids usually come home with an abundance of candy packed in their trick or treat bags, and are allowed to have a few pieces each. We usually donate the abundance the following day, because not only is it not good for them, it really tends to change behavior patterns because their bodies are just not use to it. I’m really conscious about what I give to my children, and while I want them to enjoy their fun, I found that giving them an alternative is just as good. I first discovered Bitsy’s Brainfood Smart Cookies at our local pediatricians office. I was intrigued with the fact that an actual cookie type snack had fruits and veggies in them. The kids happen to love them, so I was thrilled when I saw they just came out with Halloween Spooky Snacks available in individual bags.
The Halloween package is perfect for giving out to trick or treaters, as well as school parties. All of Bitsy Brainfood snacks are nut free, USDA Organic, made with organic fruits and veggies, non GMO, and made in cute alphabet-shaped Smart Cookies. The flavors included in the Spooky Snacks multi pack are Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin and Orange Chocolate Beet.
While Siella is getting accustomed to learning her alphabet, and Bitsy’s Smart Cookies have even come play an educational role. She loves spelling out words, and guessing what starts with each letter. While Ryder is still on a gluten free diet, Bitsy’s also makes gluten free options in their fruit and veggie cereals.
And if the company couldn’t get any better, they contribute to nonprofit organizations and schools, serving preschool and elementary aged children through their “Giving A Bitsy Back” fund. While I wish everyone could give out Bitsy’s Brainfood for Halloween, I know what our home will be giving out to trick or treaters and bringing to all of our parties. Thank you Bitsy’s Brainfood for making healthy fun and yummy for the kiddies.
You can find Bitsy’s Spooky Snacks at your local Target or Wegmans until Halloween!
