Give Something Healthy to the Lil' Monsters

Wow, summer just went by in a blink of an eye. Soon, the leaves will begin to change it's color and fall will be here. Fall is my favorite season, with the beautiful fall foliage, nice cool weather and Halloween!! Yup, I just love Halloween, don't you? Halloween is just so much fun but it was be really unhealthy too. Imagine your kids coming home with tons of candy from their trick or treating. How unhealthy can that be?? Isn't there a healthier alternative?

I recently came to know of the Trick Or Treat Me blog. This site aims not only to provide good nutritious alternatives to keep your kids healthy but also the environment 'healthy'. It's a wonderful site and a resource that parents can use by getting resourceful tips for healthy living, while still having some fun this Halloween season. Isn't that cool? They understand, you are busy and most kids can be picky, when it comes to healthy eating. Therefore, this site aims to be a hub for all things tasty, healthy and easy – and hopefully they can provide you with some great trick or treat ideas too!

If you like to keep up on the latest and the greatest, check out this new “milk box” campaign ( It’s fun, it’s silly and it’s for a good cause – every time you play, they donate to World Wildlife Fund. Sound good? We’re just getting started! Hershey’s and Organic Valley want to spread the word about milk in single serve, shelf stable cartons.
To do so, they have created applications on Facebook, Twitter and the Web. On the social networking sites, you can choose whether your friends deserve to be treated or tricked – all the while supporting World Wildlife Fund. How? Check out Trick Or Treat Me on Twitter. A donation is made to the World Wildlife Fund for each click on Twitter, where users can opt to “trick” or “treat” their friends, depending on what they deserve. And on the Web, you can upload headshots of yourself and your friends, only to have them appear atop the dancing bodies of monsters, ready to trick or treat at your friends’ doors.
These applications are easy to do and easy to become addicted to! It’s easy to get swept up in the Halloween spirit. So take part in this all-around great campaign and share it with your friends today! Remember: while you’re sharing a laugh with your friends, you are also helping protect the future of nature with the World Wildlife Fund.
