Kids love Halloween. I‘m assuming it’s because it is the one day out of the year they get to collect and eat all of the sweets they want. And my kids look forward to Reese Cups and Gummy Bears—not pretzels and organic fruit snacks in their trick-or-treat bag.
Lord knows I have TRIED to slip in healthy Halloween snacks for my kids so we don’t have to deal with the extra trips to the dentist after all that candy is gone…but it never worked. So I started wondering if it’s even possible to get kids to eat treats for Halloween that aren’t candy.
And I have found several Halloween treats and snacks for kids that are so scary good, they didn’t even notice that candy was missing! The trick? You have to give these everyday foods a festive look so that they’re excited to eat it!
Here are 15 non-candy Halloween treats and snacks for kids.
