This is the easiest Halloween treat to make with your kids!  They are a healthy alternative to traditional candy and gluten free, of course.  These little cuties took on their own personalities with their different shapes and sizes. The way the strawberry tops formed for their hair cracks me up. We even gave some of them a haircut.

When buying strawberries it’ a good thing to buy organic.  Strawberries are one of the fruits with the highest pesticide residue.  It would suggest checking the dirty dozen list of the top 12 fruits and vegetables when shopping and make a conscience effort to at least buy organic those with the highest pesticide levels.

If you want the “Dirty Dozen” list in a jiffy click here, and you can review the items so you will know which ones to purchase organic.  There is even research that shows organic produce is often is higher in antioxidants and nutritional value  than conventional.  You can feel good about spending a little more to get more nutrition!
