Inside: From the healthy to the not-so-healthy, from sweet and sickly to savory, here you’ll find a bumper list of Halloween treats for toddlers

Rock on – Halloween is nearly here! Whether you’re celebrating at home or have a party planned for your tiny tots, when it comes to Halloween, the candies and treats pretty much have the starring role.

It’s time to start cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Or maybe just decorating, chopping and constructing a spookilicious Halloween treat, because, if you’re anything like me, with little ones at your feet being overambitious when it comes to food is a recipe for chaos… 

But here there’s a little bit of everything, whether you want to go all out or take the easy route.  From super duper easy Halloween treats for toddlers to slightlly trickier ones, from healthy Halloween treats to those laden with candy. You’ll also find some divinely frightening (not really) savory Halloween snacks, plus easy Halloween cookies and cupcakes.

A little about me

Mom of 4 kids, baby sleep expert plus home organisation and kids activities and crafts

Hi, I'm Sarah

Mom of four outrageously gorgeous Littles.  Yup, four!  The twins are now two and that title still brings me out in a cold sweat… Yet I’m just as determined to give them the best without losing my mind.  I reckon it’s possible!  Most days.  

I love a challenge and have to find out they ‘why’, ‘what’ or ‘how to’  –  there are rather a lot of these when it comes to kids… 

I also love, love, love things to be neat and tidy and just so.   The Littles normally have other ideas!
