We have all heard the saying “don’t play with your food” but when it comes to these healthy halloween snacks and lunches you can have so much fun! With my desire to live a healthy life but still let my kids enjoy treats, I’ve had to come up with alternatives to all the junk food and sweets that come with Halloween and other holidays. One day I was scrolling through Pinterest and came across these super cute Halloween snacks, so this year I’m giving it a go!
There are so many fun things that you can do to add a little surprise to your kiddos school lunch on the days building up to Halloween. If you’re a busy mama like me and thinking “I got no time for this!” don’t worry because there are super simple but still cute snacks you can do!
I’ll start will a few easy ones:
- Pumpkin Snack Packs
This one is very easy to do! Take a regular ziplock baggie, draw a fun jack-o-lantern face, and then fill it with goldfish or carrots! This is great for if you are wanting to do something fun but don’t want to have to buy anything extra. This also works for any fruit cups. Simply draw a face on the lids and ta da, you have your self a pumpkin snack pack! Get creative with the things you kids like. Oranges and bananas are fun things also to turn into a pumpkin or ghost with just a sharpie!
A fun treat that will take a little more time would be Meatball Mummies!
To make these I would get ground Turkey and a roll of pizza crust dough.
- Season the meat with salt, pepper, and garlic. Cook the meat into small meatballs. After cooked skewer three of them together
- Cut the pizza crust dough into strips and criss-cross wrap them around the meatballs to make them look like mummies.
- Bake you mummies at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
- Remove the skewers and use ketchup, mozzarella cheese, olives, or any fun foods to make eyes. AND ENJOY!!
I hope you and you family enjoy your Halloween!!
