16 Better Halloween Choices

Better choices for Halloween food

 

During what many call flu season it is extremely important we help our children stay healthy.  Refined sugars are detrimental to the immune system and make the body much more susceptible to disease.  Help our children stay healthy this Halloween by replacing candy with healthy treats.  Below is a list of possible candy alternatives to hand out:

  1. Chewing gum with stevia
  2. Vampire teeth
  3. Halloween stickers
  4. Party favor sunglasses
  5. Small cans of playdoh
  6. Noisemakers
  7. Pencils with Halloween erasers
  8. Halloween bouncy balls
  9. Temporary tattoos
  10. Small bottles of bubbles
  11. Corn nuts, peanuts, or trail mix
  12. Packages of no-sugar added hot cocoa
  13. Individual bags of roasted pumpkin seeds
  14. Sunflower seeds
  15. Pre-packed cheese and crackers
  16. Spare change
