10 Halloween Kids Meal Ideas
Scary EyeballsMake deviled eggs and add a little more mustard into the egg centers or a thin dollop under where you will lay a black olive into the creamy center.
Ghost SandwichesCut your bread into ghosts, add the filling of your choice and your children will have a ghostly treat for their school or after school sandwich.
Wormy Hot DogsThinly slice your hot dogs and then microwave. This will make them curl to look like worms. Put them on a hamburger bun and dress with mustard, catsup and pickles to make a slimy swamp underneath.
Ghostly ToastToast your bread. When it is cool enough to cut, with a gingerbread girl cutter or a plain knife, cut to make a ghost body. Top with whipped cream cheese or flavored yogurt with raisins or dates cut for eyes.
Orange Jack O LanternWith a toothpick, gently carve a face into the orange. Careful not to injure the meat/pulp of the orange, your child will have a small version of the Jack O Lantern that is healthy and edible.
Salty BonesMaking breadsticks for your spaghetti tonight? Here’s a Halloween twist. Unroll a tube of refrigerated breadstick roll and separate the triangle pieces.
Roll the remaining 4 flaps into what would make the end of a dog bone. Sprinkle with coarse salt and bake as directed.
Graveyard SnackTake a cup of plain or buttered popped popcorn; add a half cup each of mini pretzels, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, goldfish crackers and raisins.
Spider SnackTaking two round cookies with cream in the middle place 8 small pieces of black licorice. 4 on each side to make the legs. Add a dot of cream from the middle to place the eyes on the top.
If you'd prefer a non-dessert spider try this one with crackers.
Goblin TonguesUsing mini bagels, spread cream cheese or mayonnaise, your preference, onto bagel. Cut slices out of circular pieces of bologna lunch meat to look like tongues and put into the top center of the bagel, leaving it to hang out like a tongue.
Pudding with Eyeballs
Create a batch of your favorite pudding from a box or homemade and add candy eyeballs. If you don't have candy eyeballs available, use mini marshmallows and add a dot of chocolate icing or melted chocolate in the middle.
Let them help you when creating these treats and they may just be a little more receptive to the new Halloween changes in foods they already love.
