Healthy Halloween Treats

What are you guys planning to give trick-or-treaters this Halloween?  I want to be proactive about what I bring into the house, because if it’s good, I’ll want to indulge.  I’m hoping to find a happy medium between what kids love and what’s not loaded with carbs and fat.  What comes closest?

I think sugar-free hard candy and sugar-free chocolate taste just as good as the regular kind.  Some of my favorites are Werther’s Original sugar-free hard candies and Reese’s sugar-free peanut butter cups.

I love giving things out to trick-or-treaters! I think I’m going to give out boxes of raisins this year. The kids may not be so happy about that, but the parents should be happy to see something healthier in their Halloween bags. 

You could also give away granola bars, bags of unpoppoed popcorn, or apple cider packets. Alternatively, you could buy a bunch of little toys, like bouncy balls and give those out.

Sometimes I hand out little erasers, stickers, pencils, and other little things.  I typically pick things that are themed towards fall or even Thanksgiving, so the kids will have time to use them.  The Dollar Tree has a lot you can pick from.

Last year I bought a variety of chocolate candy bars because they’re popular, but I don’t enjoy eating them myself.  Chocolate actually makes me ill, it always has.  That’s all I bought because I knew it wouldn’t tempt me.  So if you can’t find trinkets to hand out, opt for something you loathe that’s usually enjoyed by others.
