Are you tired of loading your neighborhood trick or treaters up with sugary products? If so, why not try to help out the neighborhood parents by helping reduce their kids’ sugar intake this Halloween holiday? Here are six Halloween treat alternatives to the high-sugar candy that you usually hand out:
Sugar-free Jello. You can buy the ready-to-eat servings of sugar-free Jello, or you can hand out boxes of ready-to-make sugar free Jello. Either way, the kids get a Halloween treat they love, and the parents will be happy that their kids get less sugar.
Small boxes of raisins. The small boxes of raisins always serve as a healthy alternative to candy bar sugar. Sure, the raisins still provide sugar for the kids at Halloween, but the sugar is natural, so this helps out in the nutrition department.
Crayolas. Who says that you have to give out high-sugar candy to the neighborhood trick or treaters? You really don’t even have to give out food these days, and some parents prefer that their kids not get food due to safety issues.
*Just buy several economy-sized boxes crayolas and tie together 2 crayolas with a ribbon, and you have a nice treat for your neighborhood trick or treaters.
Cheese or Peanut Butter Treats. Why not hand out the quick-and-easy peanut butter treats that you can buy at the dollar store. You can buy either the individual cheese and cracker packages or the peanut butter and miniature breadstick packages to hand out for the Halloween festivities.
Small Boxes of Cereal. This Halloween treat does serve as an alternative to candy, but it does still provide some sugar for your trick or treaters. Even so, the neighborhood trick or treaters are still better off eating cereal than they are candy.
School Pencils. Parents tend to appreciate such items as school pencils during Halloween because pencils serve as a safe alternative to food, and provide the kids with a useful Halloween treat, so don’t hesitate to pass out some unsharpened pencils at Halloween.
*Whatever you decide to hand out to your neighborhood trick or treaters at Halloween, do take into consideration the sugar content that the treats provide.
