Children LOVE this collection of Healthy Halloween treats and non-candy Halloween treat alternatives for Trick or Treaters, kids at school, and Halloween parties! Below you will find Halloween handout ideas and Halloween candy alternatives to your typical sugar-filled Halloween treats.
Don’t get me wrong… I love a tasty treat as much as anyone else. What I don’t love are treats filled with high fructose corn syrup and artificial ingredients. Especially in excess on occasions like Halloween.
This year my husband and I have decided to lessen the impact by choosing to provide healthier alternatives for our trick or treaters–and ourselves. Come on… you know you dig into the candy bowl too!
