Enjoy these HEALTHY Halloween Treats Instead of Candy

You don’t often hear the phrase “healthy Halloween.” Ask kids what their favorite part of Halloween is and most of them will answer “CANDY!”.

Truth be told, this mom has a pretty demanding sweet tooth so I too look forward to some sweet treats this time of year. Like most holidays, Halloween has expanded to be more than a day-long celebration.

As I walk through my neighborhood and see house after house decorated with cobwebs, Happy Halloween flags, and skeletons dangling from trees, I realize that Halloween is now celebrated throughout the month of October. That’s a LOT of candy.

So, whether you are helping out with a party at school, hosting one at home, or just enjoy celebrating this fun holiday with your family, I wanted to give you some non-candy treats you can enjoy so that you can still fit into your costume on Halloween and have strong, healthy teeth to tackle those Bit-O-Honeys. Here are some of the best healthy Halloween treats.
