30 Healthy and Festive Halloween Treats. We have 30 healthy Halloween treats to use at home, for Halloween parties, or as an alternative to candy for trick-or-treating. https://www.superhealthykids.com/30-healthy-festive-halloween-treats/

There are lots of spine-chilling frights that we parents may enjoy during Halloween season, such as terrifying decorations, spooky costumes, and haunting music, but a frightening Halloween staple that many parents would like to limit is sugar-filled candy and treats.   Sure, in moderation, candy can fit into the diet, but most of us feel as if we are on candy overload after all of the Halloween festivities.  So when it comes to your contribution to the Halloween class party or to just celebrating the joy of the season in your home, is it possible to have healthy Halloween treats and avoid the candy aisle?  Absolutely!  We have a list of 30 ideas of how you can avoid candy and other sweet treats.
