Healthy ‘Green’ Halloween Treats

Who doesn’t love this time of year – especially kids?! In a couple of weeks young children will be dressing up in their favorite costumes collecting bags full of delicious treats. Want to keep your treats healthy and fun? It’s easier than you think.

Gone are the days of collecting bags full of sugary, chemical- and dye-laden treats from well-intentioned neighbors and friends. Now even Halloween has gone ‘green’!

Easy suggestions are the ‘mini’ versions of some of your own adult favorites, like mini Larabars and Clif Bars, or smaller bags of dried veggie chips and dried fruits. Other fun, nonfood items are henna tattoos, yarn bracelets, stickers, etc.

The Green Halloween web site lists dozens of creative ideas and suggestions for treats and trinkets of all kinds for kids.
