7 Baby-Friendly Halloween Treats


Candy, chips, and popcorn balls are some of the most common treats to get in your child’s goody bag, but what about the babies? We’ve featured many costumes for babies, but the one thing that is missing are the treats!

So what can you give or have your family members hand out that is both healthy and suitable for little ones? This was a question that was on my mind this morning as I started thinking about my own son’s second Halloween. He will be old enough to *munch* and grab at his sister’s treats, so I want to make sure he has a nice selection for himself.

Here are 7 ideas. (Please note, most of these picks are only suitable for older babies who can chew.)

Fruit Puffs
Have you ever tried those whole grain fruit puffs? They melt in baby’s mouth and taste great. These delicious snacks come packaged in a plastic tube-styled packaging making them great for Halloween. I may or may not be munching on some right now….

Diced mango is a good idea as long as you keep them stored in the fridge. This is where individual lunch baggies come in handy!

As a whole fruit, these are divine and just as good chopped into bite-sized pieces.

If you decide to hand out cheerios, be sure to package them in little baggies beforehand. My son loves to munch on this yummy cereal and he will be finding couple of snack-sized packets in his Halloween bag next week!

Babies and bananas are a match made in heaven!

Individual yogurt containers are a fun idea as long as you keep them refrigerated at all times. Have Grandma keep a couple of extras in the fridge and stop for a quick snack on your round-a-bout.

Goldfish Crackers
Who doesn’t love Goldfish? They are a must-have when traveling and a great idea for Halloween. The orange color is right on target for the season!

Tell me, what kind of treats do you plan on feeding your baby this Halloween?
