Healthy Halloween Hacks & Snacks

Creepy crawling hand by Kmart

Costumes, lollies-on-tap and a suitably spooky playlist – no wonder my little boy has declared it his favourite night of the year. We’ve definitely embraced Halloween; our enthusiasm has led to an ever-increasing dress-up and decorations box the hubby brings out of storage every October. As the shops reopened after lockdown, my son and I ventured out and stocked up on more decorations to fill another box with; hubby was suitably thrilled! And so he should be – the creepy crawling hand from Kmart alone was a highlight purchase for all involved.

Now, I’m all for celebrating a fun holiday with the kids but Halloween sparks an inner parental fear beyond the ghoulish lawn props and faux spider webs – Enter the combination of sugar-high children and a late-night – now that’s scary!

To be fair, the sugar is inevitable and super fun which is why we’re big on balancing the candy highs with snacks of substance beforehand. I’ve found some crackers over the years that look the part and are an instant hit with everyone whilst lining little bellies before trick-or-treating.

Stave off your little monster’s sugar high on the night with these healthy treat ideas.
