5 Halloween Treats for Babies

Easy Snacks for Little Ones

Nothing is as fun as baby's first Halloween: cute costumes, fun photos, fall foliage... It's such a great "first." Your little one might not be old enough to indulge in a Jack-o'-Lantern candy bucket full of sugary loot just yet, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate. There are a bunch of sweet treats you can give baby. They're also healthy!

If you're expecting a little trick-or-treater to be stopping by this Halloween, you might want to have some baby-friendly treats on hand, or you may just want them on hand for you and your baby to snuggle at home with while catching up on your favorite scary movies. (Charlie Brown and The Great Pumpkin, anyone?) Check out these five yummy, healthy, age-appropriate Halloween treats for babies who have just begun eating solid food:

As long as your teeny trick-or-treater hasn't been diagnosed with any milk allergies or intolerances and is at least 8 months old, you might want to considering presenting the trick-or-treaters with a six pack - a six pack of Stonyfield Farms Yobaby Yogurt, that is. Yobaby Yogurt is an organic product that comes in several varieties - from yogurt/cereal blends to plain, unsweetened yogurt. Yogurt can be a yummy snack that has little ones lapping it off the spoon.

Okay, so it isn't exactly a snack, but giving a set of Tovolo popsicle molds along with some baby-friendly popsicle recipes can be a delightful treat for babies.
