Halloween is spooking up!
Yet again, it's time to face the modern day parenting Halloween dilemma: How do you keep your kids from eating tons of candy without them calling you a monster?
Well, Corey Colwell-Lipson, founder and director of Green Halloween, has got the solution — Trick your kids into eating a healthy treat!
Here are six healthy alternatives to candy:
Stretch Island Fruit Strips – Each strip contains ½ serving of real fruit and but it's still sticky and stretchy, so kids wont even realize they're being healthy!
Larabar Mini Bars – Made with gluten free all natural ingredients. Flavors include Chocolate Chip Brownie and Peanut Butter Cookie.
Endangered Species “Bug Bites” — chocolates made with all-natural and organic ingredients. They're a healthy(er) alternative to regular candy AND 10% of the proceeds are donated to species and habitat conservation!
FruitaBü Fruit Rolls — It's just like Fruit-By-The-Foot, but without all the artificial sugars, flavors, colors or preservatives
Honey or Agave Nectar Sticks — These pure and natural sweeteners make for a convenient treat!
AND for the mom who likes to give out a homemade treat…
Honey Popcorn Balls (pictured above) — Just a handful of popcorn and a tad of honey, butter and vanilla extract creates a tasty and natural treat for kids!
