Halloween is here. It is a time of costumes and festivity. It is also a time of tricks and treats. Though the treats do need to be sweet, they don’t necessarily need to be candy. There are a number of fruit-based alternatives that are plenty sweet without all the sugar. The best way to encourage your children to enjoy more healthy snacks during this holiday season is to play a little dress up.
Here are three fun alternatives to chocolate and caramel. As long as your treats stick with the theme, your kids are sure to love them.
