Healthy Halloween party food

Halloween is just around the corner. The shops are full of ghouls and goblins and the kids are asking about Trick or Treating.

Even if you don’t go all out decorating your home as a witch’s lair, we’ve gathered together some healthy food choices you can use. Some of these can be used for birthday parties too! We’ve included healthy options, not just so they help moderate the lollies but also so they can make lunchboxes fun over the coming weeks.

Jack-o-Lantern

Kids asking to carve a pumpkin but you really don’t feel that inclined? What about an orange?

These little fruit filled jack-o-lanterns will keep them happy with having that orange toothy grin and you pleased that they will be eating fruit.

This one would be great as an after school snack or fun way to present desert.

Ditch dull dinner vegies

Do your kids eat pumpkin? What about carrots? What about carrots that look like pumpkins? (or any other fun Halloween shape)

Trim carrot rounds into pumpkin shapes and toss them in a salad, pop them on a platter, add them to a stir fry, or steam them with the other vegies for a fun way to incorporate Halloween and get the kids to eat their vegies.

  • We just hired Bop till you Drop to do a virtual birthday party for my 8 year old and I was soooo impressed. They did it through zoom, but they must have used professional equipment as the sound and image was amazing. Cathy the host was so friendly, energetic and full of life. My daughter and her friends loved it and didn’t want it to end. It was so nice seeing all the girls and boys on screen dancing and laughing. Cathy made my daughter feel so special. At first she was disappointed that she couldn’t have all her friends over, but by the end she was thanking me and even asked if we could do the same party next year. Thank you Bop till you Drop, you guys are a life saver!!!

  • Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for Emily’s Bop Till You Drop 5th Bday Disco party on the weekend. Lexi was amazing!! She kept the kids engaged and entertained throughout the whole party, and the disco was an absolute hit with the kids (and parents!). Lexi transformed our lounge room with her disco lights and everyone had a ball singing on the microphones, playing party games and showing off their best dance moves. The birthday girl was so happy her favourite songs were played and she felt the centre of attention. Also wonderful that even with her recently broken arm, Emily was able to join in all the games, singing, dancing and activities – in fact I think she completely forgot she had a broken arm! Have already heard from a number of parents that their kids would now like a disco party too. And of course Emily loved the party so much she wants to do the same thing next year! Thanks again.

  • Our daughter and her friends had the most wonderful time at her 5th Birthday party with the help of Bop till you Drop. Our gorgeous host kept all the kids engaged and partying on. We had so many compliments from friends on how good the entertainment was and how much fun they were all having.

  • We have just had the best school disco in years! All the kids enjoyed themselves and the energy and excitement from both Stacey and our students was amazing. All students from Kindy to Year 6 had a wonderful night, being able to get up on stage to dance and sing to their favourite song was great to see, Stacey did an amazing job! Thank you! We can’t wait to have BTYD back!
