Zucchini Eyeballs

We made these Zucchini Pizzas for our meal planning site during the summer.  It wasn’t until I was looking through some old pictures that I decided they look like eyeballs and would be perfect for Halloween!!

We love finding healthy food for a holiday that is famous for being the most unhealthy of them all!  With all the candy and junk food kids get, it will actually be welcoming to have a little vegetables and protein for a snack on Halloween.

While there is still a week or two left of the zucchini harvest, you should get all you can out of the zucchini’s that are left.

Zucchini is terrific for kids because:

  • It’s high in vitamin C
  • It takes on the flavor of foods you cook it with easily, helping kids to accept it.
  • It’s a good source of manganese and vitamin A  (Zucchini eyeballs for healthy eyes!)

Zucchini Eyeballs. Halloween is days away! Add this snack to your festive spread!
This snack is also a great way to get kids in the kitchen! Simply cut zucchini into diagonals, arrange slices on a baking sheet, and top with marinara sauce, cheeses, and olives. (see full recipe below)
