Candy, getting to dress up as a favorite character, and getting to hangout with friends after dark? Halloween is most definitely an exciting holiday for kids (and adults too- we must admit we sneak some of our kids candy from time to time)!

If you are looking for ways to keep Halloween fun while also sneaking in some nutrient-rich treats, look no further! Check out these ideas below to get ready for this year’s spooky holiday.

To avoid all of the added sugar without taking the fun out of Halloween, aim for treats with simpler ingredients such as:

    • Fruit Snacks – see brands in section below 
    • Chocolate Bars- We like Enjoy Life & Unreal brands   
    • Pretzels- We like From the Ground Up & Fitjoy brands  
    • Mini Cookies- We like Annies, Home Free, Made Good, or Munk Pack brands

You may be surprised how much kids actually like getting non-candy items too! Have some of these on hand if you have a child with an allergy, or to just add into the bowl as an option for a fun surprise:

    • Stickers 
    • Bubbles
    • Glow bracelets 
    • Spider rings 
    • Sticky hands

Besides the non-candy items above, here are some allergen-free halloween treat ideas to have on hand for trick or treaters with allergies:

Have you heard of the Teal Pumpkin Project? Putting a teal pumpkin or flyer with a teal pumpkin, indicates that you have allergen-free treats to give out! This helps families with kids with food allergies to know they are included and can enjoy a safe treat from you!
