Most children are excited about Halloween not only because they can dress up as their favorite characters, but also because they will have access to an abnormal amount of candy. However, there are other great ways to have them celebrate this American holiday with non-candy snacks that are just as fun! Some of our alternatives for the upcoming Halloween are below:
- Fruit snacks: you can make Halloween fun by giving out these fruity figures and characters for kids to enjoy. Caramel grapes, frozen banana ghosts, popcorn ghosts, mandarin oranges “pumpkins” are also great ideas that are good for both your teeth and heart. Look for great ideas on Pinterest and the internet!
- Healthier candy choices: many of the most popular food and candy brands are making different editions of their famous snacks that have less sugar. Look out for these while at the grocery store or shop for “fun” sizes. Dark chocolate, peanut M&M´s and tootsie rolls are also better options to select.
- Organic pops: organic candies have no preservatives or harmful acids which can also be a good idea for Halloween.
