Tips for Handing Out Healthy Halloween Treats

HalloweenThanks to Halloween parties and trick-or-treating, it’s hard to avoid sugar in October! While we’re not suggesting that you don’t participate in the activities, there are a few areas where you can make improvements. 

According to the American Heart Association, children should only be consuming between 12-32 grams of sugar each day. A single serving of candy corn contains a whopping 28 grams of sugar, which is enough to bring your child to his or her sugar limit all by itself. 

Healthier Halloween Candy Choices 

Below are a few ideas for filling your trick-or-treaters bags that won’t cause them dental damage: 

  • Mini bags of pretzels 
  • Mini bags of crackers 
  • Boxes of raisins 
  • Mini granola bars 
  • Bags of fruit snacks 
  • Stickers 
  • Crayons 
  • Small toys or noisemakers 

The children who trick-or-treat at your house will be excited about the unique treats and their parents will be happy about the healthier options! 

To make an appointment for a regular dental cleaning and exam or for a post-Halloween checkup, please contact Severance Dental located here in Severance, Colorado. Dr. Kelly serves surrounding communities providing quality dental care to Eaton & Pierce families.
