Banana Ghosts & Orange Pumpkins

Healthy Halloween Snacks for your Kids

There is so much in the way of sugary snacking going on this time of the year. Why not feed your children something much more healthy?

These banana ghosts and orange pumpkins will have them squealing with delight, while making sure they get the nutrition from healthy food instead of sugary calories.

Healthy Halloween banana ghosts and orange pumpkinsThe treats could not be easier to make.  You will need these ingredients:

  • 1 large orange (make sure it is easy to peel!)
  • 2 large bananas
  • 4 chocolate sprinkles
  • 8 dark chocolate chips
  • 1 small piece of celery

Peel the orange and remove as much of the pith as you can. (I’ve also seen these done with tangerines which would be easier in this regard, but they are also smaller and I like the larger orange for the pumpkin.)

Cut the bananas in half. 

Place a one inch piece of celery into the opening at the top of the orange.  Add the chocolate chips to make ghost eyes and one sprinkle for the surprised mouth.That’s it!  A healthy snack in no time at all that your kids will love.
