Hand Out This, Not That: 15 Healthier Halloween Treats to Give Out

By Kelsey Banfield |

I love Halloween, though there is a limit to how much candy I really want in the house. My daughter is at the age where she is really understanding the holiday and has the single goal of collecting as many sweet treats as she possibly can. I don’t mind her having a few, of course, but I’d rather her not have a ton. Going over this in my head makes me think it might be smart to hand out something on the healthier side this year. I went through Family Kitchen searching for some healthier Halloween treats and found some of these great ideas!

    These treats look great-but, unless you’re very sure of the “beggers”-beware! PEANUT ALLERGIES…

    My mom was vigilant about checking our treats for safety and would not let us have any homemade treats unless we really knew who was handing them out. I don’t know my neighbors now as well as we did when I was a kid, so I am always afraid that making treats would be a waste. Do people do this to hand out at the door, or mostly just for parties?

    These are great ideas, but for me I wouldn’t let my kid eat anything not wrapped. You never know. But I would give them out at a party or maybe bring them to school to freak out classmates (both my daughter’s and mine!)

  4. Vicki says:

    Yeah I will never hand out home made treats. In fact I skip the candy this year I am giving out glow sticks that I got a great deal on on a week or two back. will probably toss in some other fun stuff like whistles, bouncy balls, and pencils (there is a huge demand for pencils in out neighborhood). last year I had a bunch of exited kids about the non Candy treats.
