Trick or treat! 3 healthy alternatives to handing out candy for Halloween

With all the hype about childhood obesity in the news, parents often ask, “What can I give out instead of candy for Halloween?”. ┬áHere are 3 healthy alternatives to candy for your little trick-or-treater:

1. Stickers! Kids love stickers, and there is no shortage of pumpkins, ghosts and zombie stickers to handout. ┬áStickers don’t cost a lot and you can put together a awesome sticker bag complete with eerie glow in the dark stickers for your trick-or-treaters.

2. Halloween themed school supplies such as pencils, erasers, clips and notepads are fun and useful for kids.

3. Jewelry: Eyeball necklaces, spider rings, pumpkin scrunchies, and glow in the dark bracelets are a great alternative to candy and can be reused next Halloween.

Happy Halloween!
