Top 10 Healthy Alternatives to Halloween Candy

Halloween is almost here! While your kids might be clamoring for candy, you may be more inclined to opt for something a little healthier this year. If you have a particularly young toddler, you might not want to introduce the sugar rush of Halloween candy just yet, either. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean you can’t have plenty of sweet treats – there are plenty of tasty healthy options out there!

Here are my top ten picks for yummy, healthy Halloween treats. My requirements: they’re not full of empty calories or loaded with refined sugars and are individually wrapped or sealed (or have their own natural packaging) so they’re perfect to hand out to trick-or-treaters!

Macks went in for his final weight check today. He turned eight months on Friday, and his pediatrician wanted to see us to get another check at his weight.

He’s Eating Pad Thai! 16 Surprising Foods Our Baby Loves

I’ll never forget when Judah first started eating solid foods: I was so excited to finally introduce flavors and textures to our son! My husband and I are big foodies: We love to cook, we love to go out to eat, and we love to try new foods and food experiences together. So it’s only natural that we’d be raising our baby to be a foodie, too!

We’ve introduced him to so any different foods, flavors and textures and we’re hopeful that as he grows into toddlerhood, we won’t go through as difficult of a “picky eater” phase as a result. Judah won’t hesitate to tell us when he’s finished eating or if he doesn’t want a particular food – but he’s also so much more willing to try new foods compared to other toddlers his age, too.

Here are some of the more adventurous foods and food experiences that Judah has had so far.
