Making frightening Halloween finger foods and following horrifying Halloween recipes for kids is heaven (or a pleasant kind of hell, it is Halloween after all 😉) for the creative fun loving brain.
If you have decided to go all out and throw a party, or even just want to have a bit of fun with your kids, then you're probably on the lookout for some fun and easy Halloween recipes for kids to inspire you and stimulate your imagination.
However, if you're anything like me and have like a million stuff on the go at the same time, you'd probably still prefer the recipes to be fairly easy and quick to do, while still being nutritious and healthy.
On my list of healthy Halloween finger foods for kids below, you will find ideas for creative Halloween snacks that won't reap the hard-grown harvest of your wallet or steal away much of your precious time. Also since 'healthy' is also prerequisite, you don't want the the snacks to contain any white sugar.
Many of the ingredients for these snacks, you probably already have in your house, and the preparation time is minimal as most of the Halloween recipes for kids include foods that you don't need to prepare much (i.e. no oven time, boiling time or frying time (except for the green ghastly poisonous pancakes 😉 ).
Ready to get your hands dirty (or bloody) or something entirely else
inappropriate for cooking, then please, dive into my list of healthy
Halloween snacks for kids.
Going for a funny but scary AND healthy Halloween snack, this mummy sandwich is very easy to do and your kids can easily take part in the creative decoration process.
All you need is: rye bread (you can use any type healthy bread really, rye bread is just the unofficial king of healthy bread types here in Denmark), cheese for bandages, red pepper for blood splashes, and e.g. olives or blueberries for eyes.
All that is required here is a bit knife work, cutting and slicing up the foods, and then simply decorating the bread until a rather cute bandaged mummy appears.
Under normal circumstances peanut butter combined with banana is a sure winner so why not transform it into a hilarious RIP coffin sandwich that your kids will love.
Besides only consisting of only 3 ingredients, all of which I had on stock, this one of Halloween recipes for kids took me less than five minutes to do. How about that?
In this one of Halloween recipes for kids, we will once again make use of our good old buddy, the rye bread.
This one of healthy Halloween snacks for kids, I'm pretty proud of myself. I'm quite in love with the big staring eyes on this scary spider sandwich.
All ingredients are healthy and organic: rye bread (yes, I know, rye bread again 😉), sausage, carrots and almonds giving your kids both healthy carbs, protein and fat, all in one go.
This example of healthy Halloween finger foods for kids is extremely fast to do and so easy to make that your kids can do most of it themselves.

This one of Halloween recipes for kids adds a truly fantastic witchy touch to your Halloween fare.
Here is what you need: bread sticks or carrots, cream cheese, almonds, avocado, salt and Thai curry (voluntary).
The result, some seriously scary witches' fingers - complete with finger nails. This Halloween snack recipe is also another treat you can hand out to trick-or-treaters.
These pancakes are great not only for Halloween but for all year around if you think your old-fashioned pancakes need colorful twist.
What do you need to do?
Very simple: just add a bit of green food coloring to your usual dough. Keep on adding until the color is bright green.
In order to make the pancakes a bit more healthy, I mix in some whole grain flower with the traditional wheat flower (about 50/50), and I leave out the sugar altogether. I really don't find that pancakes need sugar (and neither does my son, apparently, as he loves my pancakes).
Again, this easy Halloween snack recipe is quick to make, costs very little, and is bound to be a hit with trick-or-treaters of all ages.
You can simply place this type of Halloween party snacks in a large bowl, and ask the kids to help themselves, or add a hand-sized portion to sandwich bags.
These healthy Halloween snacks for kids are great to just have in bowl on sofa table at home, or you can fill a few plastic bags with them and let your kids snack on them while being out on their trick-or-treat tour.
This Halloween snack recipe offers taste and nutritional value.
These bloody fingers wrapped in bandages (wholegrain tortilla) are just so realistic, that my son yelled, 'Mom, they're just gross'.
Now, that's a compliment when we're talking Halloween snacks 😉 And they're really simple to do.
You just need three ingredients: organic sausages, tortilla (you can do wholegrain if you want a healthier version) and ketchup.
The above picture shows how to cut out the hole for the nails that you will fill with bloody red nail polish (ketchup).
These disgustingly bloody fingers mark the end of these Halloween recipes for kids. I hope you found something of inspiration that you can use to make this a fun, happy and healthy Halloween for your kids.
