Healthy Halloween Treats

healthy halloween treats

October is the month of Halloween, which means sugar will soon be everywhere. For health-conscious parents, this sugar phenomenon is often scarier than the costumes. But have no fear! We are here to offer you healthier alternatives this Halloween. Read this blog for some of our favorite healthy Halloween treats.

Switch Witch

Ever heard of the Switch Witch? It offers a creative way to get rid of all that extra candy. Have your kids put their extra candy out at night. The next day, they will find it replaced with a present they will surely love. It’s a win-win situation! You keep them healthy, and they remain happy.


Jack-o’-Lantern Fruit Cups

Fruit is always a colorful and festive way to get your kids’ attention. To make some adorable jack-o’-lantern fruit cups, slice the tops of a few navel oranges. Scoop out the pulp and use a paring knife to carve the jack-o’-lantern faces. Fill them with grapes and other berries!


Candy Corn Popsicles

Stay away from the popular (but highly-processed) candy corn and make these delicious popsicle replicas instead. Simply use pineapple juice, orange juice and yogurt.


Mummified Apples

You know what they say… a mummy a day keeps the doctor away. These little mummified apples are adorable, and so easy to make! Simply use googly eyes and gauze to turn your apples into scary mummies your kids will love.


Frankenstein’s Monster

It’s alive! Well, not really. But this spooky veggie tray that looks like Frankenstein might still give your kiddos a scare. You can even get them to help you assemble it, which can trick (or treat) them into eating their veggies.

Eyeball Pasta

Dress up some green spinach pasta with googly eyeballs! All you need are string cheese, black olives and a straw. This is the perfect Halloween-themed dinner idea.


Jack-o-‘Lantern Clementines

This is the easiest Halloween treat of them all! You simply need some clementines, tangerines or oranges and a food-safe pen. Everyone in the family can have fun drawing spooky faces! These make the perfect snacks to include in your kids’ lunchboxes during the week of Halloween.
