Trick or Treat Yourself….

Say goodbye to the sugar-fuelled ghosts of Halloweens past. Here are three spooktacularly healthy Halloween snacks that will keep the kids happy without sending them into a hyperactive overdrive.

Munchy Apple Minions


An apple a day keeps the monsters away. These munchy apple monsters are fun to make with the kids (and an easy way to get them eating more fruit!).

The Recipe:


  • 2 green apples, each quartered
  • peanut butter
  • 32 sunflower seeds
  • 3 strawberries, sliced
  • 1-2 sugar eyes per monster


  1. Cut the middles out of each quarter of the apple to create a mouth.
  2. Coat the inside of the cut gap with a filling of peanut butter.
  3. Stick 4 sunflower seeds into the top of the mouth like jagged little teeth.
  4. Add 1 sliced strawberry inside the mouth – it’s the tongue.
  5. Add a dot of peanut butter to each eye and stick onto the apple above the mouth.

These banana pops are a great alternative to sugar-filled ice creams and lollipops. If you want to go totally refined sugar-free, but keep things delicious, use Greek yoghurt instead of white chocolate.

The Fire-Breathing Melon Monster
