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. Last year, my husband and I helped sponsor a local “trunk or treat” event and handed out plastic spider rings….let me tell you they were gone in the blink of an eye! Kids actually picked it over the candy! 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!
