What should I cook for Halloween Dinner?
I’ve collected 12 quick and healthy Halloween dinner ideas for kids. So, when your kid comes home with a pillow case full of sugar, rest assured that they’ve eaten something healthy. Bonus for me: most of the ingredients are what I would already have in the fridge and pantry.
1. Halloween Roasted Veggies
2. Clementine Pumpkins
3. Halloween Themed Mini Pizzas
4. Jack O’Lantern Stuffed Peppers
5. Cheese Monsters
6. Boonana Ghost Pops
7. Ghost Hard Boiled Eggs
8. Apple Mummies
9. Guacamole Halloween Bats
10. Halloween Themed Grilled Cheese
My go to quick meal! I like to use sprouted bread and add shredded spinach and hemp hearts to ramp up the nutrition of this classic.
How to make it Halloween themed? Cookie cutters!! Any shape, any size!
11. Skeleton Veggie Tray
I have found a veggie tray is THE easiest way to get Amelia to eat lots of healthy foods! She isn’t expected to sit still and she can choose what she feels like. Bonus when you’re in a rush like Halloween night, you can throw some in a container for the walk.
For dips, my go to is always Greek Yogurt Avocado Ranch from It All Begins with Food. Greek Yogurt is high in protein so it’s a great choice for making dips extra beneficial.
12. Spider Eggs
This recipe calls for a small amount of wasabi but for kids could be omitted
