Healthy Halloween Goodies

Aloha everyone! My Fall break ended quickly and I realized that there are only 2 weeks until Halloween!!

If you follow my blog then you know Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  I love everything about it, including eating my favorite candy!

This is the worst part of Halloween for me.  I eat so much sugar especially at school and crash when I get home.

I have been really good about changing up my diet and not eating so much processed sugar.  In fact since doing the Whole30 diet in June I have kept up some really great habits and passed them onto my family.

I want to continue with this for my class party this year.  If I keep it a free for all I will be bombarded with sugary treats and that's not healthy for anyone.

So I found a few healthy, affordable and easy alternatives for our class Halloween party.

How cute and fun are these orange pumpkins?! 
Put out some Sharpies and have your students decorate their own!  

These String Cheese monsters are fun too,
and kids could again decorate their own!  

Another quick and easy idea that kids would love to make!

Pumpkin Quesadillas will be a hit with many of my students!!

These Banana Ghosts and Pumpkins are so fun and
I am sure will disappear very quickly!

Mummy Dogs are too cute!!
As a mom I would probably substitute with lower fat turkey dogs.  
I don't think the kids would notice.

I know many of my parents are busy like me and most of these snacks take some prep time.  I plan to even ask parents to send in healthy alternative snacks like veggie chips or popcorn.  

I was checking out one of my favorite sites, and found a great page for all kinds of healthy snacks.

I may or may not have loaded up my cart with lots of snacks for me and my girls!

I know many schools now days have rules about parties and not even allowing cupcakes for birthday parties.  Hopefully some of these ideas will help to create a fun and healthy Halloween in your classroom this year.  Check out my Pinterest page Kids Cooking for even more ideas!

  3. Thank you for all of these great healthy snack ideas! Our school has a strict policy when it comes to sugar and fat so I'm always on the lookout for fun, healthy snacks.
