Halloween is so much fun! You get to carve pumpkins, have parties, and wear costumes. But costumes don’t just have to be for you and your friends, they can be for your food too! While you’re having fun with your friends or your children, remember to incorporate fun in your foods too.

Healthy Halloween Themed Foods

This time of year, it is easy to get bogged down with thoughts and fears about food. Overeating or “falling off track” can take over the joy of the holiday. But our dietitian nutritionists are here to remind you that every food can fit into a healthy diet in moderation and that your life does not have to be controlled by meal time fears. In order to get into the Halloween spirit, I decided to put together a few sweet treats that just scream Halloween. These are great to make for parties or to put together with your kids, just for a fun activity! I can’t wait to serve these to my friends at our apartment Halloween party this weekend.

Banana Ghosts are Healthy Halloween Themed Foods

Peel your bananas and just break them in half by hand. Use the mini chocolate chips to make eyes and a spooooooooky mouth. These little guys and sweet and full of potassium. Yummy, cute, and nutritious!

 

Mandarin Pumpkins

Healthy Halloween Themed Foods

Mandarin orange pumpkins

What you need

  • mandarin oranges
  • one stalk of celery

What to do

Peel all of your mandarin oranges but do not break the apart. Slice the celery stalk into small pieces, about a centimeter in length and a half centimeter in diameter. Push the small celery pieces into the top center of the oranges, keeping them poking out a bit. Basically the easiest and most adorable pumpkin snack out there!

 

Witches Hats

Healthy Halloween Themed Foods

Fudge stripe witches hats

What you need

  • Fudge stripe or Oreo cookies
  • orange frosting (tube kind is easiest)
  • Hershey Kisses

What to do

For this one you can either use a fudge stripe cooking or an Oreo, in this case I used a fudge stripe. Flip the fudge stripe cookie so the striping is on the bottom. Using the tube or orange icing, squeeze some in the middle of the cookie. Push the Hershey kiss into the center of the icing dollop and wallah! Witches hats fit for any coven.
