Healthy Halloween Fun

Pin It Now!
In honor of Halloween and being home all day after Hurricane Sandy, we spent some time in the kitchen making scary Halloween snacks. Here are some of the best healthy ideas I found:

Great-looking spider deviled eggs

Caprese salad eye-ball monsters

Ghost pizza

Halloween quesadillas

Cut-out cheese and crackers

Banana ghosts and Mummy dogs

So far we have tried:
  1. Ghost sandwich cut-outs (cute idea but my kids aren't really sandwich eaters)
  2. Banana ghosts with chocolate chip eyes (my 8 year old preferred the eyes to the banana, but my 4 year old loved them!)
  3. Bats made from cheese slices (using a cookie cutter) with spinach leaves on whole wheat crackers (also a hit with the 4 year old!)
  4. Jack-o-lantern quesadillas (a big hit for everyone!)
  5. Mummified hot dogs made with organic crescent roll dough and nitrate free hotdogs (they both loved making them and eating them!)
  6. I attempted some witches cut out of beet slices, but even witch-shaped, kids do not seem to be a fan of beets.
