20 Alternatives to Halloween Candy

Halloween is just a few weeks away! Whether you are passing out candy or taking your little one trick-or-treating, consider alternatives to Halloween candy. We all know that little ones do not need a bunch of sugar! (Okay, one or two pieces won’t hurt!) If you are passing out treats at your door, you might think about passing out something other than mini candy bars or candy corns. If your little one is going door-to-door, consider buying some treats for him that you can swap out so he isn’t eating so much candy. I’ve put together a list of 20 things that are just as tasty or fun as a sugary treat…
