Have a Healthier Halloween: Your Action Plan
Don’t fret! These sneaky ingredients don’t have to take all the fun (and flavor) from Halloween. Check out these tips for a healthier Halloween, no creepy ingredients included.

1. Choose better: Okay, there’s no denying a least a few pieces of candy on Halloween. So while we’re at it, let’s pick some better options, like dark chocolate Raisinets, mini Hershey Special Dark bars, or a Twizzler or two. Or try low-fat popcorn and pretzels for some crunch!

2. Make your own: Ditch the wrapper and make candy from scratch. Try some classics like Snickers,Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, or these vegan Kit Kats. That way, you’ll have control over everything that goes into the mix!

2. Sharing is caring: Stuck with a whole bag of Halloween treats? Make sure to spread the love! Bring the bag into the office or share with friends, while allowing yourself a bite-sized treat when that sweet tooth kicks in!

3. Get creative: The stomach can be satisfied on Halloween without going down the candy aisle. Sip on some spiced cider, munch on a caramel apple, or dip some sliced fruit in a creamy pumpkin dip.

4. Give it away: Donate the extra goods to people around the world. Organizations like Operation Shoe Box and Operation Gratitude are great places to start.

5. Celebrate outside: Halloween isn’t just about the sweets. Focus the fun on other traditions, like hayrides, apple picking, or walking through a haunted house (eek!). We promise you won’t miss those Almond Joy’s.
