I absolutely love Halloweentime. From the costumes and decorations to trick-or-treating, and fall activities like carving Jack O’Lanterns.

Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year, so why not surprise your kids with a fun healthy Halloween lunch or snack that day.

These lunches are so much fun to make. I’m showing you how to do three (Frankenstein, a Jack O’Lantern, and Skeleton), but with a little creativity, you could make them for any of the traditional Halloween characters.

What you need


Add your favorite filling to your wrap.

These easy lunches for kids are perfect whether you are making them for school or home. It would be so much fun to surprise them with a Frankenstein lunch on Frankenstein Friday, Friday the 27th of October. A Jack O’Lantern or skeleton lunch on Tuesday 31st of October for Halloween would be perfect too.

I was inspired to make these healthy Halloween lunch ideas by the new Mini Babybel® Halloween cheese available in Target stores.

Watch the video below for the full details on how to make the sandwich wraps, but they are quick and easy. I put chicken salad in mine, but you could make them with turkey, salad, leftovers, or whatever your kids normally love in wraps – my little man loves gluten-free sandwich wraps with ham and cheese.
