Halloween can be healthy! These Healthy Halloween Snacks are the cutest thing to make and will get the kids creative too.
Create a really fun, quick, artistic and healthy Halloween snack. Take satsumas or small oranges and wash them to remove some of the grease on the skin. Let children use marker pens to draw on pumpkin faces and leave to dry for an hour. It really is that simple.
They look so cute and I love seeing how excited children get when they get a little pumpkin they can take around with them but also eat when they’re hungry. They take a lot less effort than carving pumpkins. You can even get really creative with paint, glitter and pompoms if you want to make a really fancy one. I love the making these. There are endless amounts of faces you could create.

When it comes to Halloween food it’s all about simple here – like these veggie Halloween mummy sausages. These spooky little mummies are simply vegetarian sausages wrapped in shortcrust pastry strips before cooking. My kids love these for dinner or in their lunchbox the next day.
