Make A Halloween-Themed Boofast

We are what you would call Halloween people. Really, we are holiday people in general, but there is something extra fantastic about Halloween. Maybe because it marks the beginning of the holiday season and it's the time of year where it is socially acceptable to gorge on candy? Either way, I love it, and we are starting a new tradition of a Halloween-themed "boofast"(breakfast)! You should've seen the look on the boys' faces when we put it all together. Pure joy and excitement.
Here is what was on the menu and how you can make your own Halloween-themed boofast, too!
  • Spooky Milk. Simply make these by using black tape to make eye and mouth cutouts and adhere them to glass milk bottles.
  • Pumpkin Cereal. Hollow and clean out enough pie pumpkins (the little ones at the grocery store or market) for your guests and place small clear bowls inside them. Fill them up with your favorite fall-flavored cereal.
  • Candy Corn Parfaits. Layer vanilla yogurt, clementines, and granola in a mason jar to create a candy corn-colored dish!
(If you want to go the extra mile and indulge a little, you can whip up a batch of poisonous apple cider donuts! They are devilishly delicious.)
Even amidst all of the candy-gorging, we still try to keep our meals balanced to include healthy options, and this breakfast does the trick. Milk is a huge staple at our house, — like, we go through four gallons a week, I kid you not! — and it is how we start off our day. Luckily, our boys can't get enough, but some kids are pickier and may not like to drink their needed servings everyday. A good way to change that is to make it fun! These spooky milk bottles add some pizazz to the usual humdrum of milk with breakfast, and make it more appealing. Sometimes it can be fun to play with your food, right?
There is no doubt Luke and Wes are setting a solid foundation for their health and growing strong bones, muscles and teeth as a result of making milk a nutritional staple. We absolutely believe milk fuels a better future. (And also provides peace of mind when someone is crying and just needs a bottle of that creamy goodness.)
Now get to making your own Halloween "boofast", and remember ... got milk?
