Healthy Handouts for Halloween Trick or Treat

Healthy Handouts for Halloween Trick or Treat

We live in a neighbourhood where Halloween is crazy big.  The displays are awesome with the houses all dressed up, glowing jack-o-lanterns, witches, ghosts, fireworks and more. It is so much fun!  Everyone heads out and enjoys the night. Needless to say, it is a very popular area for kids and some houses report getting 500 kids come to the door to trick or treat.  To top that off the residents are very generous often handing out 2 or 3 treats to every child.  That is a lot of treats which usually means it is a lot of sugar!

With all the tempting sweet treats it is hard to not overindulge, especially when the kids have collected them.  How do we enjoy the holiday but not go overboard on sugar, calories and fat?  Luckily there are more and more healthy options to handout for this Halloween.
