Eeeek! It is nearly Halloween and every shop seems to be jammed full of lollies, chocolate and not so healthy foods.
And your kids are probably saying “Mum can I get those”
It can be tough – especially as it can be a fun time of year with so many families having a bit of Halloween fun and as mums we up saying NO all the time and feel in a bit like the fun police
But not this year!
We have some super fun recipes that get into the Halloween spirit but also show our kids how fun can be healthy too.

Halloween Spider


  • 1 large peach per spider being made
  • Small cup of  blueberries
  • Some Toothpicks for the legs
  • A tsp of cream cheese and a few raisins for the eyes

Create four holes on each side of the peach. Insert blueberries onto the toothpicks. Pop one of the tooth picks into the peach and a second toothpick into the last blueberry of the previous toothpick.
Repeat for the rest of the seven legs.
Then dot some cream cheese on the peach for the eyes and pop a raisin in each blob of cream cheese
Make sure you supervise young children due to the toothpicks in this recipe

Scary Monster Teeth


  • 2 large apples
  • Nuts of choice – we used slivered almonds
  • 1 pot of peanut butter ( you can also use almond butter)

Cut apples into slices, then spread peanut butter onto the apple slices to join the apples together to form the mouth
Insert the nuts to act as scary teeth

Web Pizza


Spread the tomato sauce over the pizza base. Separate or cut cheese into smaller strips for the spiders web. Place in a cobweb pattern on the pizza. Bake for 10-12 minutes in a hot oven until the cheese is melted.
Get creative and use olive halves and slices to create scary spiders

Pumpkin & Ghosts


  • Clementines
  • Bananas
  • Celery
  • Rasins

Peel the clementines and remove the core. Slice celery into skinny strips, and insert into the middle of the clementine.
Peel and cut the bananas in half. Push two raisins into the banana for eyes and one for the mouth.

Capsicum lanterns


  • Capsicums
  • Mixed salad
  • Shredded cooked chicken

Cut faces into the side of the capsicum as you would a pumpkin using a small sharp knife. Cut the lids off the capsicum. Remove the seeds inside. Stuff pepper with salad mix and top with the shredded chicken.
