Cooler Than Candy: Halloween Treat Ideas

Cooler Than Candy. Healthy Halloween Treat Ideas.We know, kids love candy! BUT, kids also love bugs, ghouls, vampire teeth, glow sticks and cheesy fake jewelry. This year we are all focused on being healthier, being our best self, and having fun, so let’s carry that spirit right into the Halloween season, yes I said last for weeks. With over $2 BILLION spent on Halloween candy, each year give your trick or treaters something that will last long past the candy, the belly ache, the sugar coma, and the dental visit ;)

Be a rebel, be unique, go ahead and fly your FUN FLAG! Instead of spending your money of candy that causes obesity, cavities, and tummy trouble, give them fun, wacky, totally goofy treats that they’ll talk about all year.

 Here are some of our favorites: 

  • Halloween Toy Packs – Get a wide variety of different toys including the ever popular vampire teeth. We got this 50 piece pack at Walmart for $4.97, that’s cheaper a bag of candy!

  • Jewelry for the Princess – We found huge jewel rings, heart shaped bracelets and fun little necklaces in the party supply section. TIP: Lots of great giveaways can be found in the party section, skip the Halloween aisles and go straight to the party supplies. 
  • Glow In The Dark Bracelets immediate fun! Your treaters will pop open their want to break these out before they even sneak their first candy bite.

  • Coloring Books and Crayons are wonderful for your littlest ghosts. You can find character themed coloring books at the Dollar Store or Walmart for under $1. Sometimes you can eve find 10 packs for super cheap.
  • Yo-Yos are always a favorite, who doesn’t love to Yo-yo?

  • Stickers!! Kids love stickers and temporary tattoos. You can never go wrong offering sheets of cool stickers. They are inexpensive, fun, and easy to find.
  • Cars and Trucks – Hot Wheels or similar style cars will go fast, you can find them in the party section in 4 packs for $1.97…score!

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
