Freaky Fruit Halloween Healthy Food Demonstration

On Halloween I found myself in an awkward spot between lessons that left me with an extra half hour of class. I took advantage of the holiday and used it to demonstrate how to prepare some fun fruits that don’t otherwise fit in the curriculum.

First, I demonstrated how to cook a pumpkin instead of just carve it.


We roasted the seeds for a savory snack.


While the seeds roasted we cut up some unfamiliar fruits.
