It’s getting chilly and the leaves are turning colors. That can only mean one thing- Halloween is coming! Children of all ages love this special day, and parents do too. It’s a fantastic opportunity to spend time as a family decorating the house, making costumes, and eating candy. They’re going to eat so much candy after they go trick or treating that you might want to keep their food healthy until then. We have 8 great ideas for snacks to pack in your little ones lunch bags. They’re healthy but spooky at the same time!

1. Cheese Snake.

This adorable snake is made from string cheese and cherry tomatoes.



2. Witches Broom Sticks.
