Halloween is known for the great costumes, trick or treating, and carving pumpkins. There is so much fun and creativity not only for the kids, but for everyone! After all the prepping and treat buying is done, what else is there to do? How can you make this Halloween a healthy one?

Pumpkin seeds make a great snack and are loaded with magnesium and zinc which great for proper bone and tooth formation, energy production. Additionally, pumpkin seeds help promote sleep, mood and sensory health as well as an insulin regulator.
