Halloween is just around the corner and kids already have candy on the brain!
I know it seems like candy and Halloween go hand in hand, but I’ve found some kids’ healthy party food ideas for Halloween that are also easy.
The boys will go crazy over the Witch Fingers, Olive Snake, and Crunchy Halloween Mummies. The Goblin Grins and Cheese Pops for Halloween will fit in flawlessly with the party decorations.
The Pumpkin Guacamole and Frankenstein Veggie Platter are ideal for larger parties since they don’t require serving up appetizer portions ahead of time.
You can even forego a cake or cupcakes and just put the Monster Fruit Dip right on the dessert table.
Not throwing a Halloween party this year? No problem.
The Ghostly Eggs, Honeydew Bats, and Cereal Monsters would be so perfectly scary to have for a Halloween breakfast, while the Egg Salad Creatures, Skeleton Grahams, and Creepy Spiders on a Log would be great to pack in a lunch bag.
