If you end up chucking away most of what your own kids get because it’s too many sweets, then maybe it’s time to do some new ideas for your own Halloween handouts. Change up what you hand out to Trick or Treaters this year with this fang-tastic list of non candy and healthy Halloween treats to hand out.

Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of fun to be had with some healthier treats! Plus you have the added bonus of knowing you have some non candy treats to give that may be better suited to children with allergies.

Non Candy and Healthy Halloween Treats to Hand Out

It doesn’t always have to be Halloween candy that you give out to those Trick or Treaters arriving at your door. After all, kids enjoy other little goodies too.

So make a stop at the discount store near you and pick up a few different items to throw into the goody bags for a change. Or rustle up some healthy Halloween treats to hand out that will still be fun for kids, even if they don’t realise they aren’t stuffed with sugar!

Healthy Halloween Treats Ideas

These Halloween treats are all healthier options than packets of sweets and bars of chocolate, but still look great and fit the bill for items you can hand out easily to your doorstep callers.

  • Take satsumas, tangerines or little oranges, and draw faces on them with a Sharpie pen in black to make the look like pumpkins.
  • Popcorn balls in paper cones or twists of baking paper decorated with Halloween stamps
  • Juice boxes or drink pouches or mini water bottles are great for handing out, after all it’s thirsty work Trick or Treating! Decorate them with googly eyes for a bit of extra fun.
  • Make your own trail mix and put into little bags decorated with orange and black ribbons
  • Snack-sized packs of pretzels or crackers
  • Gruesome Witches Fingers
  • Real fruit strips, ropes or Fruit Winders
  • Mini raisin boxes
  • Banana chips
  • String cheese – with ghost faces drawn on
  • Vitamin C lollipops
  • Squeezable yogurt pouches or tubes
  • Bags of mini carrots
  • Sugar-free gum (for older kids) – great for cleaning the teeth after all the sweets too!
