7 Healthier Treats for Halloween

It’s not uncommon for kids to wolf down more than 800 calories and 150 grams of sugar on Halloween. They can do that with just 15 pieces of candy. So think of this holiday as an opportunity to teach your kids a lesson in moderation. You can show how to ration their candy through the end of the year, rather than binge all at once—without taking the fun out of Halloween.

Another way to set a good example: Fill kids’ bags with healthier alternatives. While fresh fruit and veggies are ideal snacks, they’re spooky as Halloween treats. This isn’t the time to teach kids about tofu, either. Again, keep it fun, but show that you can still make healthy choices by balancing their candy intake with healthier options. Click on the slideshow above to check out our favorite kid-friendly snacks for Halloween.
