Need some fruit for a Halloween party? Try these perfect healthy Halloween snacks to offer a side of fresh fruit to balance out all the candy this holiday season!
1. Banana Ghosts
These ghosts are more cute than scary, making them lots of fun for younger kids. You just need to peel a banana, carve the bottom, and then add candy eyeballs and a chocolate chip mouth. Easy!
2. Green Goblin Smoothie Bowl
The green color of this smoothie bowl gives a toxic waste/monster kind of feel. The more spinach you add, the greener the smoothie will be. Add some edible eyes for a spooky treat!

3. Halloween Fruit Kabobs
Skewer your favorite fresh fruits (we like to use black/blue and orange fruits) and stick candy eyes onto a berry with cream cheese or peanut butter!
4. Jack O Lantern Applesauce Cups
These are such an easy Halloween snack idea because they require so little effort! Grab some carrot peach applesauce cups at the grocery store and draw on a face with a black Sharpie.
You can also use mandarin orange cups or another prepackaged fruit cup and add your favorite Halloween designs.
5. Frankenstein Kiwis
These Frankenstein kiwis look like they came right out of the laboratory! Make them yourself with kiwis, a pretzel stick, melted darkchocolate, and some white chocolate chips. You can even poke each head into a popsicle stick. So yummy!
6. Cantaloupe Jack-O-Lanterns
Use mini Halloween cookie cutters to make spooky shapes out of melon, like cantaloupe or honeydew melon. We like to use these stamp cookie cutters for extra detail! The great part is that it’s obvious what you’re making and the cookie cutters save you lots of work!
7. Tangerine Pumpkins
These clementine pumpkins are one of the best ideas for a school snack because they require minimal effort but look so cute! Peel your mandarin orange, then add a green grape quartered lengthwise for the stem. You can also use a thin celery stick if you prefer.
8. Frankenstein Grape Cups
These Halloween fruit cups are so easy! Just add some Googly eyes and draw on a silly monster face. Then, fill the cup with grapes or another sliced or cut fruit! The green grapes really play into the monster look.
9. Apple Monsters
You can also make a little DIY jack-o-lantern in any fruit by slicing a whole for the mouth and adding sunflower seeds for the teeth and a strawberry slice for the tongue. Doesn’t this green apple look cute? (Okay, maybe these ones are a little scary!) You can even dip them in this 4-ingredient peanut butter dip for extra protein!
10. Minion Bananas
These adorable minion bananas only require googly eyes and a black permanent marker! They’re so easy you could even invite the kids to help for a fun craft.
