Alternatives to sugary candies for Halloween

Posted on October 24, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Halloween will be here soon and if you are concerned about sugary excess here are some alternative ideas for Halloween trick or treat giveaways:
For young children give away small toys like
*small plastic ghosts or spiders
*temporary tattoos or stickers
*colorful  pencils or erasers
*cats-eye marbles
*”super” balls
* plastic rings or whistles
*bubble solution
*see what is available at the dollar store

For food  or candy treats try:
*lunch or snack size bags of pretzils or crackers
*individual boxes of raisins
*100% juice boxes
*sugar-free gum
*fat-free candy like Fig Newtons, gummies, SweetTarts, Twizzlers or Skittles
*lower-fat chocolate candies like York Peppermint Patties, Junior Mints, 3
*giving out the smallest size of the candy
It  does take a little more thought and planning than just going with the 5 lb bag of junk candy,  but it is so much better for the kids.
