Halloween is an exciting time of the year, especially for kids. The joy of picking out new costumes, going trick-or-treating with family and friends or celebrating at school with classmates. Unfortunately, it’s also a holiday full of endless candy and sugar overload. It’s nice to have healthier snack options that are also fun to eat. Here is a list of 10 easy and healthy Halloween snacks for kids. These snacks will get the kids excited about eating healthy and having fun on Halloween.

Candy Corn Fruit Cup

This delicious and healthy Halloween snack is all about the presentation. Make sure you use a clear glass or cup to get the perfect visual of the candy corn fruit cup. Start by layering the pineapples at the bottom then orange slices. Finally, top it with either whipped cream or vanilla yogurt.

Banana Ghosts

It’s a cute and simple snack that is healthy for your little ones. First, peel a banana then cut it in half. Then add two dark chocolate chips for the eyes and one for the mouth near the pointed end of the banana. You may substitute the chocolate chips eyes for edible googly eyes for this healthy Halloween snack. 

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Looking for a healthy Halloween snack for the older kids? Try these roasted pumpkin seeds that are delicious and fun to make. Start by preheating the oven to 300 degrees. Wash the seeds then toss with a little bit of olive oil or melted butter and seasonings of your choice. Finally, place the seeds on a baking sheet in a single layer then bake for about 45 minutes.

Cheese Eyeballs

Babybel cheese rounds are quite popular with kids. They are also perfect for making spooky and edible eyeballs.

Bloody Band-Aids

It’s not as bad as it sounds. This gross looking snack is made with graham crackers, cream cheese or white frosting and strawberry jelly or red decorator’s gel. Serve this fun Halloween treat on a plate with real band-aids.

Halloween Smoothie

If you’re trying to add more vegetables to your child’s diet, this is a great option. My son is usually picky about certain vegetables. Making a smoothie is a wonderful way to get those picky eaters to try vegetables in a fun way. This Halloween smoothie contains carrots, apples, frozen mango, and celery.

Monster Teeth

Start by sectioning each apple then sprinkle with lemon juice. This stops the apple from browning. Next, spread a little peanut butter (or sunflower seed butter) on each slice of apple. Finally, place about 4-6 yogurt covered berries in the peanut butter. Then, place a second peanut butter-covered apple slice on top. Make sure to place in the refrigerator for one hour before serving this fun and healthy Halloween snack. 

Cheesy Witch Brooms

Use a knife to cut the string cheese into two then fray the bottom half. Last, add a pretzel stick then tie with a fresh chive or scallion.

Cinnamon Sugar Bats

Use a bat-shaped cookie cutter to create this adorable snack. Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Next, cut the bat shapes out of each flour tortilla. Mix sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Then, spread on a small plate. Melt butter in a small bowl. Then, dip the tortilla pieces in it. Coat only one side of the tortilla with the cinnamon sugar. Place on a lined baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes to complete this healthy Halloween snack. 

Spiders on a Log

I know you probably heard of ants on a log but this is the Halloween version. First, cut the celery stalks into 2 inch-long pieces. Next, add a small amount of peanut butter. Finally, add a small plastic spider or a plastic spider ring on top of the peanut butter.
