Give the children in your neighborhood creative treats for a healthier Halloween.

It's almost time for Halloween. Little ghosts and goblins will be running through neighborhoods across the country, going door-to-door, calling out the same three words, "trick or treat!" Of course, they'll be hoping for and expecting treats. This year, instead of handing out the usual candy treats, consider trying an alternative. Here are some Halloween treats the children will enjoy that won't leave them bouncing off the walls:

  • Small bags of pretzels or chips
  • Mini-bags of microwave popcorn
  • Fruit-Roll Ups
  • Fruit juice snacks
  • Small packages of nuts or sunflower seeds
  • Individually wrapped beef jerky or Slim Jims
  • Snack-size graham crackers, animal crackers or Goldfish crackers

You could even consider non-food items. Here are a few:

  • Stickers -- kids love stickers
  • Halloween (or other cool, colorful) pencils
  • Plastic whistles
  • Spider rings
  • Brightly-colored toothbrushes and flavored dental floss

Be creative and help the children in your neighborhood have a healthier Halloween!
