Ideas for Healthy Trick-or-Treats

Halloween is just a week away and many people are planning ahead so that they have some treats available for any trick-or-treaters who might show up at their doors. Of course that means candy. With our commitment to personal health responsibility, it would be rather inconsistent of us to say candy is not good for me, but it's fine for the little ones who show up at my door because that's how it's always been.

Char Nolan who blogs at the Engine 2 website had a post the other day with a few ideas on what to give as substitutes for candy, and a few what not to give as well.

What to give:

  • wrapped dried fruit (how about little boxes of Sunmade Raisins
  • Small boxes of 100% fruit juice
  • Non-food items like PBA-free water bottles
What not to give:
  • fresh fruit (people in the past have actually spiked fresh fruit and most parents are wary of their little ones accepting fresh fruit)
  • anything with nuts or possible nut contamination (Char recommends actually telling the parents that all your treats are nut-free)
  • Candy :-)
For Char's full list, head on over to her post at the Engine 2 website:
