Candy reigns supreme on Halloween, try these substitutes for a healthier Halloween for your children and your family.
Tip 1: Feed your family a nutritious lunch or dinner before trick or treating so your children are less likely to dip into the candy bag.
Tip 2: While you cannot control what your neighbors hand-out for treats, you can offer healthier treats at your home:
- Glow sticks
- Soap Bubble Makers
- Plastic spider rings or vampire teeth
- 100% juice boxes
- Sugar Free Candy
- Mini boxes of raisins
- Small boxes of cereal
- Snack size packages of pretzels, popcorn, dried fruit
- Squeezable yogurt tubes or pouches
