Healthy Halloween Sweet Swaps

by Tess Donelon

With Halloween around the corner, it's a good time to look more deeply into the types of sweets that you and your children enjoy. That’s not to say that you need to get rid of the sweets entirely. You’d be surprised how many healthy alternatives there are for classic Halloween treats. The same sweet, sour, fruity, flavors that we all love…just without those unnecessary synthetics and preservatives.

Without further ado, here is a list of our suggested Halloween candy swaps. All treats, no tricks!

Hershey’s Milk Chocolate —> Alter Eco Sea Salt Dark Chocolate

This year, instead of going for the classic Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, opt instead for dark chocolate to support brain and heart health. Alter Eco’s Sea Salt Dark Chocolate is organic, Fair Trade, and just one serving will give you four grams of fiber…not to mention, the touch of sea salt really brings it to the next level. 

Rice Krispies —> MadeGood Vanilla Crispy Squares

In the most covert way possible, the MadeGood Vanilla Crispy squares aren’t just a great dupe for the classic Rice Krispie Treat, they also sneak in tons of nutritional goodies that go completely unnoticed. Although no one will be able to taste it, these squares actually contain veggie powder from spinach, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes and beets. How about that for a healthy, but still tasty, treat? 

Haribo Gummy Bears —> YumEarth Naturals Gummy Bears

There’s nothing spookier than high fructose corn syrup, but with YumEarth Gummy Bears, you don’t have to worry! They include all natural fruit juice and cane sugar, plus one snack pack provides 100 percent of your daily Vitamin C.

Fruit RollUp —> Bear Real Fruit Yoyos

The only ingredients you’ll find in these Fruit Yoyos are real fruits and vegetable extracts. Zero preservatives, zero additives, and zero reason to not like them! Just roll them out and go to town! 

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups —> Justin’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Organic and made with real ingredients, Justin’s Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups aren’t just good for you, they’re good for the planet too. All we can say is yum!
