Spooktacular Halloween Snacks

Spooktacular Halloween Snacks

This is probably the only time I don’t mind hearing “Boos” from my kids at the kitchen table!  Your kids will surely think these Ghost Quesadillas are a spooktacular snack.

Classic quesadillas are kids favorite and they can be customized in so many ways. These cheesy bites of deliciousness in a toasted tortilla are sure to please, especially when your kids can gobble up the ghost or monster (instead of the other way around)!  Or perhaps a cute-quesadilla such as a jack o’lantern made from an orange sun-dried tomato wrap?  Get creative and have fun!

Use your kid’s favorite cheese and experiment with different types of tortillas or colored wraps.  Use scissors to cut out ghost and monster shapes.  Add colorful toppings to make the faces.  Talk about the colors and the different types of faces (scary, happy, sad) that you can make with various veggie ingredients!

If your child tends to be “afraid” to try new foods, enlist his or her help to make the quesadilla for you or someone else.  Interacting with the food, different textures, colors and shapes is an excellent opportunity to improve a picky eater’s tolerance for various textures of foods.
