Healthy Halloween Treats

Halloween is almost here….

With the growing childhood obesity epidemic, is it possible for kids to have a fun but healthy Halloween?

Here are some suggestions for healthier treats for the trick-or-treaters:

 • Sugar free gum

• Cheese and cracker packages

• Small packages of raisins or nuts

• Package of instant cocoa

• Peanuts in the shell

• Halloween themed pencils, erasers

• Cheese sticks (low fat)

• Single serving boxes of cereal

• Pretzels

• Stickers

• Coins

• Rubber spiders

Encourage the kids to eat a snack before going trick-or-treating so they won’t eat all their candy before they get home. Ration out the candy, allowing only a couple of pieces per day.

Enjoy and Have a Happy Halloween!
