Halloween snacks don’t need to be made with unhealthy candy to be cool, fun and delicious. Instead, try these healthy Halloween party snack ideas for kids this year and see what the kids think. Chances are, they will not say a word and eat them up because of the cuteness!
So you’re looking for Halloween snack ideas for your kid’s party at school or perhaps something fun to take to the office? While you can find many creative Halloween recipes online all day long, if you’re looking for something healthy, you may have to search a little longer. I’ve got a few ideas here that are healthy enough and fun enough for both kids and adults to enjoy.
Healthy Halloween Party Snack Ideas for Kids
Halloween is a time for kids to have fun dressing up and do some trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Many schools have Halloween parties and ask children to bring in a treat for the class to share. If you have the time, you can bake healthy snacks such as carrot cupcakes or banana bread and the kids, or you can make the ones I’m sharing. Either way, I think they will eat it up.
The above photo is cute ghouls made with kiwi, strawberry, mini marshmallows (the healthy kind if there’s such a thing), and chocolate dots or melted chocolate. Grab a toothpick and put it all together. How sweet it this! While you’re at it, check out how waste-free lunchware saves our planet and your pocketbook.
Healthy Halloween Party Snack Mix Recipe
Mix up a large bowl of snack mix for Halloween using the following ingredients:
- 2 cups Cheerios cereal
- 1 cup organic dark chocolate pieces
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/4 cup coconut shreds
Toss all the ingredients together and serve as each snack in bowls or place in a large bowl for everyone to share. You can even place a cup full in cello bags to hand out to trick or treaters. This recipe is so easy to change too. Have fun with it, but keep it healthy.
Halloween Nut-Free Treats for Kids
It’s important to remember that many schools have a nut-free policy within the entire school or just in your child’s classroom. Check ingredient labels to see if products are made “In a nut-free facility” or “made in a facility that processes nuts.” If a package does not show whether it is nut-free, don’t take the chance and choose different products to use in your recipe.
Make something hilarious that the kids and even the teacher will get a kick out of it. For these healthy Halloween ghosts and pumpkin snacks, you’ll need bananas, oranges, celery, and melted chocolate (dark).
Cookie Decorating Ideas for Halloween
The internet is full of fun sites that offer a variety of decorating ideas for Halloween cookies. Recipe sites such as All Recipes, Amazing Moms, and Family Fun have some fantastic decorating ideas that are easy to do and wonderful for display. Many recipes allow you to cut the sugar for icing for a healthier, but still tasty, Halloween snack. I always change recipes for “healthier” food.
Lunch Platter Ideas for Halloween
For lunches, consider making platters of orange cheese cubes, green celery, red grapes, cherry tomatoes, orange bell pepper slices, and sliced mangoes. Traditional Halloween colors are orange, black, red and yellow, so find healthy foods with those colors and get creative with lunch platters. You can make ghost sandwiches or pumpkin sandwiches as well by merely cutting bread into desired shapes.
Remember to shop the aisles at the grocery store for healthy Halloween snack ideas for kids and have fun with it.
