I have mentioned before that my children LOVE Halloween (almost as much as Christmas) and really get into the spirit of it. I thought it would be fun to do a full round up of my Halloween ideas and recipes from this year and past years. Also included are some suggestions for healthy halloween ideas to take to a kids party.

Breakfast & Lunch Ideas
I tried to keep it simple and easy for more creative ideas lunches by lindsay has a ton!
You can choose from one of these 3 recipes or your own favorite green smoothie.
Monster Face on Glass: Use dry erase or wine markers on glasses or plastic tumblers to make monster faces – Savanna & John had fun creating their own

Two thin banana slices with mini chocolate chips & candy corns for a mouth
Quesadillas & Banana Ghosts
Cheese Ghosts, Mummy Apples, Jack’o’Lantern Peppers and my Healthy Brownie Bite Bat
Ghost and Bat Toast with Clementine Pumpkins
If don’t need the pumpkin waffle maker you can simply cut these out or have your kids have fun cutting pumpkins out.
Rolled and cut into hats & bats!
Some of these items are great ideas for class parties or to take to a Halloween gathering as well. It is great to have some healthy options to fill up on to help prevent eating too much candy.
