Halloween Inspired Healthy Treats

mummies and broomsticks


Looking for a “NOT CANDY” treat idea for your child’s Halloween party at school?  Try these super SIMPLE, healthier alternatives.  Ingredients needed: cheese sticks, pretzels, applesauce pouches, “mummy wrap” and black Sharpie.

Broomstick How-To:

1. Cut cheese sticks in half and make the sweeping part of the broom by peeling the cheese sticks on one end.  This is the most time-consuming part of the project, but it doesn’t have to look perfect 🙂

2.  Insert pretzels into the non-shredded end of cheese stick.  Slowly works better or else they might split in half.

3.  Sweep and eat!!  Yum. Yum.


Mummy How-To:

1.  Wrap applesauce pouches in mummy wrap.  I used ace bandage wrap, but a cheaper alternative would be white streamers.

2.  Tape onto pouch so the mummy doesn’t get free.  hehe.

3.  Have your toddler/kiddo help draw mummy faces onto the pouches.  Bonding time AND time-saving for mom.  #winwin
