An Alternative to Passing out Candy on Halloween

Every Halloween we think about healthy treats to dole out, but raisins don’t always appeal to kids, and which Princess or Pirate is going to eat an apple over a chocolate bar? Here are some kid approved healthy treats that you can feel good about giving. Did you know that kids will snatch up school supplies? Try giving out glittery pencils or sports team pens, fun erasers, or stickers. As long as you don’t eat them, there are no calories in a box of crayons, colored markers, or sidewalk chalk. Take a trip to your local dollar store for a cornucopia of little goodies, jacks, superballs, decks of cards, rubber spiders, toys, books, and art supplies. Who said Halloween had to be about junk food
