If you have or had young kids at home, you probably are familiar with the famous kid's book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

This after school snack for my son was made from Babybel cheese, green apple, a little piece of cheese slice and fruit leather. Pretty fun and healthy, isn't it?

7 Healthy and Simple Halloween Recipes

Are you looking for Halloween recipes that are not load with sugar and are easy to make? If you do, you will love these ideas from Real California Milk . Each one of these recipes take less than 30 minutes to prepare!

- Toasted Ghosts: Frightfully good. Choose your favorite cheese such as Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Colby or Swiss and cut into a ghost-like shape with a cookie cutter. Place the cut-out cheese on two slices of bread and toast, open-faced under the broiler.

-  Eyeball Salad: Ghoulish and gooey! Create a bed of spinach topped with bocconcini (small mozzarella balls) cut in half, decorated with sliced olives for pupils and ketchup lines to look “blood shot”. Use a tomato or red bell pepper strip to create a mouth.

- Pumpkin Shake: Spice up the season by blending milk with canned pumpkin, orange juice, honey and pumpkin pie spices; serve in a tall glass topped with whipped cream and grated nutmeg.

- Spider Web Pizza: A boo-tiful and delicious dish. Using pre-baked pizza crust, spread pizza sauce evenly. Create a web pattern made with string cheese and bake until bubbly and golden brown. Decorate with a black olive “spider”.

- Cottage Cheese Brain: Frankenstein beware! Mix blueberries, diced strawberries and chopped nuts with cottage cheese, form into two lobes of a “brain” on a plate or platter.

Frozen Ghost Pops: For a ghostly delicious frozen treat try freezing vanilla yogurt in traditional popsicle-shaped molds. Once frozen, remove yogurt popsicles and design faces made with licorice or black jelly beans.

- Witch Sticks:  Spear cheese cubes of any flavor with chunks of pepperoni or salami on fun Halloween picks – a snack on a stick befitting any ghost or goblin!

I would like to thank the California Milk Advisory Board for sending me the photo and recipes to share with you. Don't forget to visit their website to find more healthy recipes, download coupons, and play games. Yes, they've got fun little games you can download or play online!!!
