Candy is dandy but it really isn’t good for you to eat. Sugar can have many unhealthy effects on your body yet on Halloween kids deserve and expect a nice treat that will help them enjoy the holiday. You can still give out sugary treats to all the witch and goblins that come to your door but let them be organic treats so they are not quite as evil for the kiddies.
Organic fruit is always a welcome Halloween treat. You can get organic apples, oranges or bananas for example to give them out as treats to the kids. Fruit is not only a tasty treat but it is also healthy for the kids to eat. Dried organic fruit like banana chips, apple slices or dried papaya can be purchased in individual plastic bags that are small in size and can be good for Halloween treats. Fruit has vitamins and minerals yet they are tasty and make nice treats.
You can also give out organic nuts of various kinds for Halloween. Organic almonds, cashews or walnuts are good treats that do not contain unhealthy amounts of sugar. If you are having a child’s party at your house a bowl of nuts for a condiment can keep the kids from getting sugar highs. You can also purchase nuts in small individual packets to give out for treats.
Making your own homemade Halloween treats can save you some money. You can only give out homemade treats to the trick-or-treaters that you know well. People you don’t know won’t trust your homemade treats so it doesn’t make sense to give strangers your handmade goodies. If you can give away homemade treats then popcorn balls, caramel apples or hard candies make good treats that can be made with organic ingredients.
You may find it more convenient to purchase individual prepackaged organic treats like breakfast bars, gum or candy treats like lolly pops. Individually packaged organic items are easy and safe to slip into a trick-or-treaters bag and they can be purchased on line or at a health food store.
Parents will appreciate treats that have less sugar in them since they are healthier but on Halloween night a child will still want some candy in their bag. Organic treats are an extra special surprise for trick-or-treating. You can feel good about giving out organic treats to your trick-or-treaters.
