    Carve out some time to enjoy these cheesy Colby Jack-o'-lanterns. This fun twist on grilled cheese provides a filling meal for kids — so festive and fun they won't even notice the healthy whole grains.

    You'll need: 4 whole-wheat sandwich thins, 2 teaspoons butter or margarine, 1 (8-ounce) block of Colby Jack cheese, sliced

    Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Split four sandwich thins in half (so you have 8 slices) and butter one side of 4 of the slices. Lay butter side down on a baking sheet and layer Colby Jack cheese on them. Cut out jack-o'-lantern faces on the other 4 slices, then butter one side and lay butter side down on baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and place jack o'-lantern faces on top of the sandwiches.

    Pizza doesn't have to be a horrifying meal — made with whole-wheat pizza dough and reduced-fat or skim cheese, it's a healthy treat! The "cheese ghosts" provide instant portion control, so your family can enjoy the gooey goodness they love, while cutting back on fat and calories.

    You'll need: 1 package whole-wheat pizza dough, 1 cup pizza sauce, 1 block reduced-fat or skim mozzarella cheese or any cheese of your choice, sliced, Black olives, chopped

    Directions: Preheat oven to 350°F. Roll out pizza dough into desired shape and place on baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread pizza sauce on top and bake for 10 minutes. While pizza is baking, use a ghost-shaped cookie cutter to cut ghosts from the cheese of your choice. Remove pizza from oven, arrange cheese ghosts on top with olive slices for eyes, and return to the oven for 5 minutes (or until cheese has melted).
