Aside from starting with the letter H, Halloween and health don’t have much in common. While it’s difficult to encourage healthy eating on Halloween, it’s not impossible. Especially when you follow some of these fun recipe ideas that will make healthy Halloween treats a hit with your kids — and friends!
Why have your kids loaded up on sugar when they can try these delicious and healthy Halloween treats, instead? See below for some great ideas…
Halloween Ghost Fruit Kabobs
I used melon and strawberries since they are my child’s favorite, but this Halloween snack would work great with any fruit. Serve at a Halloween party or send in as a fun snack for your kids to share at school. You will need to use a black food coloring marker that’s hard to find for a ghostly face on the marshallows, but the reaction it will get on your child’s face is priceless.

Candy Corn Fruit Pops
In my child’s opinion, frozen treats are good all year round, and I tend to agree. These Candy Corn Fruit Pops have no sight of candy or dyes anywhere. Just naturally sweetened and colored with fruit! Credit to Super Healthy Kids (recipe link inside) for this healthy Halloween treat that my family can’t wait to try!
These deviled eggs live up to their name thanks to the edible eye and horn garnishes. You could also skip the horns and use a single olive slice for a fleet of Cyclops eggs, or do a mix of both. The sharp cheddar cheese gives the yolk mixture a Halloween-orange hue. How fun!
Pumpkin Mummy Cookies
Don’t let these spooky-looking cookies scare you off. They’re really soft and delicious on the inside — gluten-free, too, thanks to the coconut and almond flour. Not only will kids love them, they only take 25 minutes to make. Check out the recipe at Eating Bird Food Blog.
“Boo” Nana Pops
I. Love. This. Although this is made with white chocolate (only half an ounce for each pop), it’s much healthier than candy, and certainly a frozen Halloween snack that the kids will love! They will also enjoy being your little kitchen assistant on this one. Thank you Skinny Taste for sharing this super fun recipe!
