Healthy Halloween Options

In Ohio, 33.3% of kids are overweight or at risk for becoming overweight and this number is increasing every year.  As parents, we need to limit children’s consumption of candy year-round so now is a good time to discuss the benefits of a healthy diet and lifestyle and the ramifications of an unhealthy one.

Here’s some Healthy Halloween options – you may not be the favorite candy house on the block but at least you’ll feel good about the fact that you’re not sending the neighbor kids into sugar oblivion.

  • Packages of trail mix
  • Cereal or energy bars
  • Small boxes of raisins or dried fruit
  • Halloween pencils or pens
  • Spooky stickers, tattoos, or spider rings
  • Coins

Enjoy a Healthy Halloween!!

    I’ve given out orange/black toothbrushes at Halloween some years back and the kids loved them, the next year they remembered and asked for them again!! (didn’t have any that year 😦
