5 Trick-or-Treat Alternatives to Candy

We have a particular love-hate relationship with Halloween. Love the books, the decorations, the costumes, the festivals, and new traditions like Booing your neighbors! Hate. All. The. Candy. Here we've compiled a list of too-adorable-for-words alternatives to handing out candy this Halloween. Plus a bonus idea for what to do with the candy pile your little one collects while trick-or-treating!


5 Healthy, No Candy Alternatives

1. Fang-Tastic Treats

LOVE this idea. What better way to convey the idea that sugar = cavities?! Parents will love you for it too.


2. Pumpkins, Mummies, and Frankenstein Oh My!

Wrap or bag those pouches (bonus if you use the Halloween versions already in stores) for a hauntingly good treat full of good-for-you fruits and veggies. You can also wrap with orange duct tape and use a sharpie to draw on Jack-O-Lantern faces!



3. Witches' Brooms Via @NorthStory.ca

This one is a little more involved, but one of the cutest ideas we've seen by far! Toddlers to teenagers go crazy for glow sticks and will be thrilled with this treat.
