Meal Plan: Post Halloween Meal Ideas
Trick-or-treat?! The phrase a child looks forward to as they run from house to house as Batman or Cinderella. Snickers, Skittles, Starburst, and many other sweet treats are thrown into a giant pillowcase, which is growing fuller by the moment. All mom can think about is how to combat the draw of such goodies and make sure the kids are getting healthy food in their tummies the days following Halloween.
This week's meal plan features dishes that are bound to pull the kids away from the candy stash, at least long enough to get something in their bellies before a night of candy.
