Halloween is just around the corner and if your little ones go to a nut-free school, then you’re desperately trying to find healthy and nut-free snacks for Halloween to bring to school.
As a mother who does not struggle with food allergies, it is difficult for me to coordinate and buy healthy and nut-free snacks for Halloween, especially when almost anything that you buy contains nuts or comes from a facility that processes nuts. Also, nut-free schools are very strict when it comes to homemade bake goods and they ask parents to only bring store bought and pre-packaged goodies so the label clearly shows all ingredients.
Kung Fu Baby Boy’s school is a nut-free school and since he has been going there for quite a while, I’ve gathered a few ideas for easy, healthy and nut-free snacks for Halloween.
Ghostly String Cheese
Most kids love string cheese, so take the opportunity to decorate them as ghosts with the help of a permanent marker. This snack is nutritious, economical and comes packaged in individual servings. Perfect for sharing at school!.
Fruit bowls are super convenient, low in calories and some brands even have BPA free packaging. I like those that are Non-GMO and are in juice, instead of in syrup because they don’t have that much sugar. GO ahead, pick your favorite fruit bowls (tangerines will be the best) and draw a Jack-o-lantern on top using a permanent marker.
Mummified juice boxes
when it comes to school activities, parents seem to forget the drinks. Save the day with these mummified juice boxes. Buy the boxes of organic juice and wrap them using white plumbing or electrical tape. Give the final touch with googley eyes.
If the mandarin Jack-O-Lanterns are not your thing, then buy a bag of natural and unprocessed mandarins and draw a Jack-O-Lantern on the skin using a permanent marker.
The ninja turtles are back and you better take advantage of the exciment they cause on children to give them a delicious green apple with a ninja turtle mask. Easy, simple and absolutely nutritious.
As you can see, healthy and nut-free snacks for Halloween do not have to be difficult, complicated or cost you an arm and a leg.
