Healthy Halloween Party Snacks

on October 25, 2012

Do the kids have a Halloween party at school next week?  If so, here are some healthy holiday themed snacks that are easy to make and are sure to be a hit!! If the school does not allow snacks to be brought then you can easily put some of these in the lunchbox for a great surprise!!

Clemen­tine Jack ‘o Lanterns – Use a black per­ma­nent marker to draw a Jack ‘o Lantern face on clemen­tines or small tan­ger­ines or navel oranges. Alter­na­tively, you could cut out the shapes on a black adhe­sive craft paper and and stick them on the orange. Either way, you should be sure to wash the orange thor­oughly first to remove any oils and residues from the peel.

Banana Ghosts – Cut the banana in half and coat the bananas with organic vanilla Greek yogurt Use about 1 ounce of Greek yogurt for every banana ghost. Be sure to freeze the banana on the stick before apply­ing the yogurt.  Add 3 chocolate chips or raisins for the eyes and mouth!

Edible Spiders -Spread peanut butter or cream cheese on a round cracker. Put another round cracker on top, leaving a little space between them. Insert eight pretzel sticks between the crackers for spider legs. Using a dab of the peanut butter or cream cheese, attach raisins or chocolate chips to the top of the crackers to make the spiders’ eyes.

Spooky Fruit – Use small cookie cutters to cut fall shapes out of thin wedges of cantaloupe, or carve funny mouths out of apple slices and put them on pumpkin shaped slices of Cheddar cheese (see suggestion above) or rice cakes. Peeled grapes make great slimy eyeballs, too.
