Have a happy and healthy Halloween

Last Halloween we wrote about fun and healthy alternatives to give to trick-or-treaters. This year, I have a few more fun ideas to add to the list.  Don’t worry, I didn’t forget about all you candy lovers out there. I have some tips to follow for healthier sweets.

In the past, my family has opted for Milky Ways and Kit-Kat bars for treats. This Halloween we are  trying something new by switching sugary sweets for toys. A few of my families’ giveaways are going to be:

  • Bubbles
  • Glow sticks/necklaces
  • Play Dough

The glow sticks are not only fun to wear, they help others see the kids in the dark.

Now for the sweet part…candy!

Not all candy is created equal and you can have healthier options for treats without the kids even noticing! Some healthier options for Halloween treats are:

  • Swap dark chocolate for milk chocolate
  • Give mini versions of your favorite sweets instead of ‘King’ size candy bars
  • Sugar free gum or mints

Now you’re ready for a happy and healthy Halloween! Feel free to share some of your favorite goodies with me below.
