Jack-o-Lanterns Orange Fruit Cups are healthy and fun snack for kids during - all candy - Halloween days. Kids eat so much candy during Halloween, keeping some fun and weird looking fruit snacks in your mind will help you feed kids some healthy fruits. 

Kids will love these orange jack-o-lanterns and eat all fruit in no time. To keep it interesting, you can add some milk chocolate candies along with fruits or play with any fruits ideas. Anything or everything (bite size) which is good for kids can be filled into these orange cups.

I have no carving skills, so, these are just rough faces that I carved on oranges and used cloves to make eyes. (Actually, being rough makes it look even better weird, don't you think?)

So, don't worry about your pumpkin carving skills, just carve some orange jack-o-lanterns for kids this Halloween. Its lot of fun, I am telling ya.
