Now that Halloween has come and gone, it’s time for the annual question: what to do with the leftover treats your kids have racked up? Here are a few creative ways to use that candy, from quick snacks to science projects, that are both fun and educational.
1. Cereal and Nut Mix
This can be a delicious and healthful snack to make with kids. Use a mix of whole-wheat cereal, nuts – and this year – some of your Halloween candy. Whether you enjoy candy corn or crispy chocolate bars, adding small amounts make a creative addition to the whole-grain cereal and nut mixture. This would be a great snack for Thanksgiving dinner—you’re going to need something to hold you over while the turkey is baking!
How do you like your coffee – black, with milk, sugar or iced? People around the world enjoy coffee – it’s one of the most popular beverages. And, according to the latest AICR/WCRF Continuous Update Reports, coffee lowers risk for endometrial and liver cancers.
AICR recently featured a delicious cold brew coffee recipe, so that inspired me to learn how people around the world consume this beverage. I found a huge variety, both surprising and somewhat familiar. Perhaps these ideas will inspire you to find a new way to prepare your coffee tomorrow morning.
On this fourth of July, treat your family and friends to a healthy, delicious and cancer-protective backyard barbecue featuring a patriotic red, white and blue menu.
Brightly colored seasonal and familiar favorites like watermelon and blueberries are always welcome, but it’s also a great time to introduce new food ideas that fit on AICR’s New American Plate – a plant-focused way of eating for cancer prevention.
