Healthy Choices for Your Trick-or-Treaters!

Although Halloween is still a couple weeks away, many of us have already started picking up our treats for our little “trick-or-treaters”. For those of you who haven’t already picked up your treats, there are many alternatives to the traditional candies, potato chips, chocolate bars and beverages that we generally give out on Halloween Night.  Children will be surprised and happy when they receive something a little different in their pile of goodies.

Here are some ideas when you go out shopping for Halloween treats:

– 100% fruit juice packs or fruit cups, dried fruit packs, fruit leathers

– Granola bars, popcorn & oatmeal packs

– Halloween stickers, pencils, erasers & stamps

– Glow sticks

– Mini play dough

– Hair buckles, lip gloss, plastic rings & key chains
