Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because I get to make goodies for my kids as well has have fun and dress up with them.

A few days ago I was able to make something really indicative of Halloween and of course I made it healthier than typical treats consumed around this time.

For this recipe, I wanted to use chocolate so I figured since we also consume a lot of almond butter and I have never made chocolate cups before I thought, why not?

These dark chocolate almond butter cups turned out great. My kids loved making these ahead of time to share with their friends later on. This recipe it is easy to make with the kids, especially those from 6 to 12 years old. If you like you can use peanut butter instead of almond butter but for use almond butter is what we liked best.

Around Halloween I like to make sure my kids hydrate with just water. Sometimes it is really hard to get them to drink since they are super busy with school and activities so when ever hydration is needed I only like to make sure they drink plain water.

These little Halloween water bottles are the perfect size. The especial Halloween designs makes them fun for the kids to consume.They actually have 8 different designs so your kids could pick their own.

NESTLÉ® PURE LIFE® “Share-A-Scare™” 8oz water bottles are the perfect size for trick-or-treating, making it easy for kids to stay hydrated throughout the night.

In a 2015 survey conducted by NESTLÉ PURE LIFE, moms and kids revealed many surprising insights about their hydration habits.

It was found that nearly 2 in 5 (37%) moms agree letting their child drink bottled water instead of out of a cup would help get their child to drink more water.

Today, beverages account for 47% of added sugars in the US American Diet and more than 13% of calories consumed per day. The 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that the primary beverage consumed be either calorie-free – like water – or should contribute beneficial nutrients such as fat-free and low-fat milk and 100% juice. Replacing a single 12-ounce, 140 calorie sugar sweetened beverage with water each day for a year can cut more than 50,000 calories from one’s diet.
