An Honestly Healthier Halloween

With Halloween just around the corner we have been in search of non candy or healthy giveaways that kids will actually like and won’t lead to our house being “egged”. I am a firm believer that anything can be good in moderation but that doesn’t mean we can’t add a little treat for our healthy, creative kiddies.

This year we have decided to hand out pencils and stickers to the trick-or-treaters. Here are 5 simple, honestly healthier giveaways that you can gift kids this Halloween. 

Pencils or Pens

I remember loving holiday themed pens and pencils when I was little. We found our pencils at our local dollar store but you can easily find them in many stores or online


What child doesn’t love stickers? I even had a hard time choosing which ones because there are just so many Halloween options. I’ve found great stickers at the dollar store, drug store and online

Temporary Tattoos 

Temporary tattoos are perfect for the older kids going door-to-door and they are also usually reasonably priced for a large amount. I think this will be our hand out next year because they are just so cute! 



Lara Bar minis 

While these little babies won’t work if you are looking for nut free, I love them for a healthier giveaway option. Lara Bar minis are made with real food and don’t contain sweeteners which makes them the perfect candy alternative for our little people. 

Natural Chocolate or Candy

If you can’t resist giving away sweets on Halloween, consider a more natural variation like naturally sweetened chocolate bars. It’s important to look for treats that are naturally sweet, contain no artificial colours or flavours and are organic where possible. There are so many natural alternatives out there now that you can easily find them in most stores and online shops. 



I challenge you to find a healthier alternative this Halloween and share with us what you decide to give away!
