trick or treat goodies. Children receive so much candy on Halloween night that they practically can open their own candy store. This year would be a great time to start giving out healthier snacks and candy alternatives. Here we have some easy ideas for candy alternatives kids will boo with joy to receive.

Granola/Cereal/Snack Bars – a sweet alternative to candy and cookies with healthy grains and less sugar.

Fruit snacks – real fruit juice and vitamins, and kids love them.

Raisins – iron rich and great source of fiber.

Sun Chips or Baked chips- small bags of Sun Chips or baked chips are better than regular potato chips.

Pretzels/Popcorn – snack size bags of pretzels and microwave popcorn are available at supermarkets.

Change – do you save all your coins? A few pennies, a nickel, dime or quarter makes a great trick or treat candy alternative.

Small toys – inexpensive small toys and party favors can be found at dollar stores and online in large packs. Spider rings, Halloween beads, play cars are some examples.

Stationary – pencils, small notebooks, erasers, stickers, crayons, also can be found at dollar stores and online in large quantities.

Bubbles – small bottles of Halloween bubbles are available at most dollar stores. They usually carry plain everyday bottles also, if you can’t find Halloween colors.

Play-doh – many stores are carrying small variety packs of play-doh for trick or treating gifts.

Coupons – lots of local businesses will have coupons that can be handed out for a small treat. You can get a pack of coupons for a small frozen yogurt for instance.

Sugar-Free Candy – if you would still like to give out candy this Halloween try looking for sugar-free versions. There are many sugar-free lollipops that taste great. Also, many of the big candy companies are putting out sugar-free versions of their popular brands. Some companies have removed the sugar and substituted them with fruit juice. These are definitely worth looking for.

Have a healthy safe Halloween!
