15 Healthy Halloween Snacks and Treats

It’s the time of year when everything gets a little bit….spookier! I’m kind of excited this year to do a little bit more with Halloween (nothing scary, just fun!) like dressing Layla up, hosting our annual pumpkin carving party, and potentially even trick or treating!

15 Healthy Halloween Snacks and Treats

Most Halloween parties are full of sugar-sugar-sugar! Lots of candy and sweet stuff, so it’s always nice to bring something healthy so you know there will at least be ONE healthy option there! I think it’s funny how often I do this (even as simple as a bowl of apples) and kids eat it up! Plus, there are so many cute ideas for healthy Halloween snacks and treats that the sky really is the limit! Here are some of my kiddie-friendly favorites:

Kid Friendly/For the Young at Heart

Banana Ghosts and Clementine Jack O Lanterns

Of course, we couldn’t save all the good stuff just for the kids! There are some amazing Halloween appetizers out there. Honestly, the gross-out factor (ie pumpkins vomiting guacamole) is NOT my thing. Food should look pretty. End of story. Bring the creepy in the decor or watching a scary movie.  Thankfully there are endless gorgeous and delicious options out there like these guys:

    1. Definitely! I know sometimes homemade treats aren’t an option in a school setting so they are perfect for that too!

  1. Well, to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of Halloween as a holiday. So I guess I would say, ‘Nay’ on creepy snacks. Some of these snacks do look yummy though! :)))

    1. Yeah, it’s definitely low on my list of holidays. I’m not into anything creepy ever, but the dressing up (in fun not weird or sketchy costumes), good food and an excuse to socialize is always fun! It’s growing on me or at least parts of it are. 🙂

  2. I love Halloween, and these healthy snack ideas, make it even better! Thanks for sharing on Creative K Kids’ Tasty Tuesdays link up. I have also pinned your recipe to our tasty Tuesday’s Pinterest Board. Hope to see you back next week!
