Of course, you can also consider the all natural treats in the market these days. Not only are these not loaded in sugar, but all the added extras that go into candy are not found within the treats - which makes them ideal for kids to eat and parents are okay with that.
Consider the healthy food section in your grocer’s store. Not only can you find gummy snacks, but healthy foods such as pretzels and other treats that will be less harsh on a child’s teeth then chocolate and other gooey snacks might be. These aisles tend to have a decent amount of snacks and treats that are individually wrapped and that can be handed out for the night. They are also a good choice to make when you’re giving them to smaller children that may not be able to eat certain candies, so purchasing crackers, cookies and other items may be ideal for the smaller crowd that comes by.
So if you’re the home that is going to be handing out candy this Halloween season, consider healthier alternatives such as all natural snacks, small toys and gifts or other items such as toothbrushes that can also be useful. Be the one that is able to clean up after Halloween, instead of adding to the piles of candy that each kid brings home every night - it can be worth it when you notice how many parents are thankful for the treats that you sent in.
Have a very happy and safe Halloween and make sure to be the scariest house on the block!
