Halloween is coming our way fast, and if you still haven’t prepared your trick-or-treat candy—now’s the time. Our brief guide is here to help you make the perfect choice and pick the tastiest, spookiest, and healthiest snacks for the trick-or-treaters this Halloween.
No Homemade Treats
Preparing homemade treats for Halloween is one of the best things about this holiday, but you should keep them for your kids alone. They’re not the best trick-or-treat choice due to safety concerns raised in recent years, and some parents will advise their children against taking them, so it’s best not to serve them to avoid rejection.
Trick-or-treating and unhealthy candy usually go hand in hand, but that doesn’t have to be the case in your household. Consider making healthier choices this spooky season, and add some sugar-free candy, dark chocolate, and chocolate-cover fruits to the mix. Tiny non-food gifts are also an option.
Some of the trick-or-treaters coming to your home this Halloween may be allergic to dairy, nuts, or gluten, so it’s best to offer some candy that doesn’t contain them. If you don’t feel like making all of your candy dairy, nut, and gluten-free, keep a separate bowl with allergy-free treats.
