16 Fun Halloween Food Ideas

As L gets older, it is more fun to get excited about holidays and themes throughout the year.  We don’t make a huge deal out of Halloween, but we will walk around our neighborhood and collect more goodies than we need.  (She will let you know, she’s not Elmo- she’s Elmo’s mom):

With Halloween around the corner, I’ve been collecting food ideas to make it more fun.  We’ll have our fair share of sugar, so most of these are ideas for creating fun with the rest of the meal or healthier afternoon snacks.

I can handle the simple ideas! We had string cheese ghosts with our lunch yesterday.  L doesn’t even know what ghosts are, but we saw these in a magazine and she was excited that she could help make these:

We’re also getting good use out of our pumpkin cookie cutter.  We have pureed carrot soup on the menu plan for tonight, and we’ll have pumpkin-shaped cheese quesadillas on the side.  Pumpkin-cut sandwiches, french toast, pancakes…

Here are some other fantastic ideas to try!
