Halloween is just one of those holidays where I have to grit my teeth and bear it. I’m really trying not to be the Grinch That Stole Halloween, I promise—I’m just trying to find healthy alternatives for my kids when I can. You know that’s what I preach around here. I know sugar will be thrown at them from all directions but at least from my side, I know we can still have fun but reduce the sugar intake when they are home.
Mabel is having more and more play dates this year. Yay! Mommy is finally getting it together regarding play dates ! So, it’s fun for her and her friends to see and sample some Halloween-inspired snacks when they come over.
This post I did last year offer some solid old-faithfuls to fall back on but today I’m adding a new one to the repertoire.
I’m just trying to find healthy alternatives for my kids when I can...
Baking sheet or plate that will fit in your freezer
Small chocolate chips or edible googly eyes
Toasted sliced almonds optional
Fill your glass up with white yogurt. Cut your banana in half, then half it horizontally. Insert your wooden popsicle stick in the flat halved end then submerge banana into the yogurt. Lay the flat cut side of the banana on your baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper. Sprinkle your toasted sliced almonds (optional) and add your two chocolate chips as eyes. If you still have those googly eyes from those Pumpkin Snickerdoodles use those! Put in your freezer and serve once frozen.
These came out so cute. I loved watching my kids faces light up an especially that look they give me like, “YOU did this?!” I have some tricks up my sleeve girls!
What are some of your Halloween snack alternatives?
