10 Candy Alternatives for a Healthy Halloween!


Let’s face it, these days people are becoming WAY more health conscious, especially regarding their children. Rates of childhood obesity, autism, attention disorders, behavior challenges, allergies, and digestive stress are rapidly increasing. In light of these, many children need to be especially careful to avoid food additives, dyes, artificial ingredients, and processed sugar. This year, my office is sponsoring a local “trunk or treat” event and we plan to hand out plastic spider rings, vampire teeth, and halloween temporary tattoos, giving the kids a fun alternative to all the candy they'll get! Here are my top 10 FUN Halloween alternatives to candy so all kids can be included and not feel deprived!

  • Stickers
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Plastic vampire fangs
  • Pencils
  • Plastic jewelry
  • Bubbles
  • Glow sticks
  • Mini crayon packs
  • Erasers
  • Bouncy balls

You can find endless and affordable options for these at many websites, but my recommendations would be Amazon & Oriental Trading!
