10 Spooky Snack Ideas for Halloween 2021

Published on October 30, 2021

What is scarier than processed food, sugar and obesity? The most horrifying thing for me around this time of the year is how children knock themselves out with unlimited chocolates and candies! So, at the end of the night, the street is full of kids with sugar rush bouncing up and down around the block. JK! But to think of it, we should be more considerate of the snacks we give for trick or treat.

My grandma used to bake some healthy cookies and give them to children on Halloween instead of those processed candies! You know, healthy may sound a little boring, but at least you don’t need to stay some extra hours at the gym after eating something healthy!

Halloween is one of the most exciting times for children, so let’s make it healthy fun for our babies.

In this article, I’ve gathered some ideas for Halloween snacks that you can bake or just give away from their package.

Here’s what you’ll read in this article:

  • Halloween History and traditions
  • Simple treats for Halloween
  • Non-food treats for Halloween
  • Some Ideas and Recipes for Healthy treats

Halloween History and traditions

The name Halloween, first recorded in the 16th century, is derived from a Scottish abbreviation of All-Hallows Eve and has its origins in the Gaelic holiday of Samhain. Here’s the list of five Halloween traditions that you may not hear about:

  1. Neep Lanterns: Some communities in the past would light big bonfires to keep evil ghosts away. In the original Scottish tradition, people carved scary faces into neeps to create lanterns that scares off spirits wondering around.
  2. Apple Dunking: This game is an ancient Celtic tradition that remained popular at Halloween parties. Players should grab an apple floating in a bowl of water without using their hands. Very fun!
  3. Treacle Scones: In this game players are again banned from using their hands and they should take bites out of sticky scones covered with treacle that are dangling from a string. Tasty and messy, no wonder it is popular!
  4. Guising: Scottish children traditionally wore costumes and pretended they were evil spirits as they went guising around their neighborhood. Could be the origin of today’s trick or treat!
  5. Nut Burning: Do you want to know if you and your loved one will live happily ever after? There was a common Halloween tradition among newly engaged couples that involved each individual putting a nut in a fire. If it burned quietly, they would live happily ever after.

Simple treats for Halloween

If you don’t have time to cook healthy snacks, you can gather some nuts and dried fruits and make a trail mix. Or you can make these cute Halloween snacks. All you need is:

String cheese, clementine, peach cups and black sharpies.

All you need to do is draw some faces on it and make sure they’re dry, and That’s it! Such an easy peasy Halloween treat you got there.
