Non-Candy Halloween Treats for Toddlers
A lot of the buzz around Halloween is because of the loads of candy that kids collect. And while we’re team one-piece-won’t-hurt or at least-Mom-can-steal-a-piece-after-the-kids-go-to-bed, every family has to do what’s right for them.
So if sugar is not your family’s thing, there are lots of candy alternatives for Halloween that will delight kids and last longer than a bite-sized candy bar. If you’re looking for allergy safe trick-or-treat ideas or just want to avoid sugared-up kids, there are some of my favorite candy alternatives for Halloween.
