Healthier Halloween Handouts
They may not make you the most popular house on the trick-or-treat route, but at least your conscience will be clear!
Cereal or Granola Bars
Most bars are packed with whole grains, fruits, and nuts; their a rich source of fiber and protein. Go for a brand that doesn’t use a lot of artificial flavorings and preservatives. If nut allergies are a concern, go for a nut-free brand.
Dried fruits are full of nutrients, much like their fresh counterparts. They are high in fiber and potassium, as well as other vitamins and minerals. Try small packs of dried apples, apricots, or cherries. Try to choose a brand made without added sugars, colors, or preservatives.
Trail mix comes in a variety of flavors, containing everything from peanuts to dried blueberries to chocolate chips, and packed with a nutritional punch: fiber and protein from nuts, omega-3 fatty acids and potassium. A little chocolate can add a healthy dose of antioxidants to the equation. Be sure to read the ingredients list to make sure the mix isn’t laden with corn syrup and other sweeteners.
This may seem more like a trick than a treat at first, but after walking around the neighborhood for an hour or more, kids get thirsty. Consider putting out an ice-filled tub of 100 percent natural juice boxes. Not only is fruit juice high in vitamin C, but it will quench the thirst of even the fussiest trick-or-treater.
