Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

I just spent 17 hours combing the interweb for healthy Halloween snacks. Along with the usual fatigue in my posterior, I think I’m going to lose it if I see another Halloween cupcake, cake pop, cookie pop, cake topped with gummy worms, or mummy dog. All that stuff is great (especially if you’re five years old). But I would like to tip my hat to the brave and creative souls that actually came up with ideas for Halloween snacks that contain something resembling food. My kids will have enough sugary goodness after the sun goes down.

A few of these aren’t necessarily specific to Halloween. But I see some potential there nonetheless. Please fill us all in on any of your brilliant ideas in the comments below. Thanks!

    Rachael Ray has little meat loaves done in a muffin tin. With Sweet Potato icing. I have made them for my kids and they are delicious. You could easily substitute the meat for veg burger etc. They are yummy and look like cupcakes

  3. Thanks Erynn. That’s a good one. My kids are suckers for anything resembling a cupcake.

  4. These are great! Thank you! I am not opposed to sweet treats at all, but when that’s all they get at Halloween, it’s nice to have some fun, healthy alternatives to give them!

    I LOVE the veggie skeleton, such a great idea for a healthy, alternative Halloween choice. I get so concerned for children around this time because of the overwhelming and preventable problem of chronic tooth decay. I gave to American’s Toothfairy this year and am using it as an alternative for candy this Halloween. It’s a great time to bring attention to this national issue! http://bit.ly/rj2K08
