Halloween is a great time for kids and adults to dress up and indulge in delicious treats! However, many of those delicious treats are full of sugar and empty calories that shouldn't be consumed so abundantly. Whether you are hosting a Halloween party for kids or adults, or giving out treats to Trick-or-Treaters, you should know healthier alternatives/treats that everyone will enjoy!
A treat both adults and children will enjoy:
A quick and easy snack that both kids and adults will enjoy includes, Chex Party Mix, Candy Corn, Black M&Ms and Orange M&Ms. You can mix these in a bowl for adults or wrap in tiny cups to give to your trick-or-treaters. The Chex Mix is a nice alternative to having a cup of just candy. More simple treat ideas like this can be found in Parents Magazine.
Treats for adults:
A delicious and creepy appetizer you can make for an adult Halloween party is Carrot Fingers and Ranch Dressing. Here, you will put a small amount of cream cheese on the ends of baby carrots, then a faced down almond slice on top of that to make the illusion of fingers. You’ll stand a few up in a bowl of ranch dressing and the rest on a platter surrounding the bowl. To make this snack even healthier, replace the ranch dressing with hummus.

The Snake-Bite Calzone is a great tasting and appealing to the eye, Halloween treat for adults. It serves 12, and there are only 150 calories in each serving! You will flatten out the dough, fill it with cheese and other ingredients you wish, then roll it into a shape of a snake. Then, you’ll spread a beaten egg white (with green food coloring) on top of your snake and add olive eyes and a pepperoni tongue. Bake then enjoy!

Treats for kids:
A healthy, creepy snack kids will enjoy for Halloween contains two flavors of Jell-O and gummy worms. You will make two flavors, and sandwich a few gummy worms in between the flavors for an eerie effect. This treat is beneficial for kids because the Jell-O is a much healthier choice for them than the hundreds of chocolates they normally have. If you want to make this treat more healthy, use Organic Gummy Worms rather than the regular ones. More treats like this can be found in Parenting Magazine.
Treats aren’t just food items. You can give kids treats that will last longer than a piece of candy! Rings are great treats for kids: No, not diamond rings! There are several types of Halloween themed rings that both boys and girls will enjoy wearing. You can purchase mummies, ghosts, spiders, centipedes, ghouls and goblins: just to name a few. Not only are these treats fun for children, but they’re also cheaper than most candies, which will keep a few extra bucks in your budget. You can purchase these rings in most party supply and halloween stores, as well as online.
