Trick-or-Treat… and Say Cheese!
Joyce Fikri from the St. Louis Dairy Council joins us in the kitchen with some delicious Halloween themed treats.
Trick-or-Treat…and Say Cheese!
October means Halloween and for a truly spooktacular time, make Cheesy Witch's Broomstick snacks while reading the witchy story Room on the Broom. The tale of friendship and trickery is the perfect way to encourage little goblins to celebrate the season in the healthy fun way.
Cheesy Witch's Broomsticks
- String Cheese
- Pretzel Sticks
- Fresh Chives
Start by having an adult helper cut the cheese stick into thirds and then make lengthwise cuts half way up each section. Insert a pretzel stick into the uncut ends of each section of cheese and bind with a piece of chive.
Cheese is one of the healthiest foods for your teeth. As with other dairy foods, the calcium, phosphorus, and protein found in cheese strengthen tooth enamel, the outer coating of teeth. Another reason that cheese is the choice for super smiles: research shows that eating cheese right after a meal or as a snack helps reduce tooth decay.
