Healthy Halloween Goodies!

Give Them Something Good to Eat…Before Trick or Treat

Before you send the little ghosts and goblins out to trick or treat for chocolate and candy, start a tradition of pre-activity healthy snacks! Apple Bites, Hot Dog Mummies, and Snack-o’-Lanterns provide for a healthy, halloween-centered treat that you will adore and have the kids coming back for more!

Here are a few of our favorites:

Hot Dog Mummies


  • 1 11-ounce can of refrigerator breadsticks
  • 1 12-pack of hot dogs
  • Yellow mustard

  1. For each mummy, separate one breadstick from the roll and use kitchen shears or a knife to slice it in half lengthwise to create two thinner strips.
  2. Wrap one strip at a time snugly around the hot dog. Depending on the size of the hot dog, you may not need all of both strips. Leave about 1/2 inch of hot dog exposed for the face area and continue wrapping the top of the hot dog.
  3. Bake the mummies on a cookie sheet at 350º for 15 to 18 minutes or until the breadstick wrapping is golden brown.
  4. Remove the mummies from the oven and cool them for 5 minutes. Add yellow mustard eyes just before serving. Makes 12 mummies.

Terrifying Teeth


  • Apples
  • Slivered almonds or mini pretzel sticks


  1. Quarter and core an apple, cut a wedge from the skin side of each quarter
  2. Press slivered almonds or pretzel stick pieces in place for teeth.

Tip: If you’re not going to serve them right away, baste the apples with orange juice to keep them from browning. 



  • Navel oranges
  • Canned or fresh fruit salad


  1. Use a small knife to slice the top off a navel orange and cut around its interior to hollow it out. Scoop out the orange segments, chop them, and mix them with canned or fresh fruit salad.
  2. Carve small facial features in one side of the orange, then cut a slit in the lid to accommodate the handle of a plastic spoon. Fill the lantern with fruit salad. Insert the spoon and set the lid in place.
