For the majority of us, Halloween treats mostly mean giving out candy, but it does not have to be that way.  You can actually give healthier alternatives, and kids will still love your treats!  According to an article by  Maureen P. Ryan published in, a recent study showed that kids welcome such alternatives. Researchers offered trick-or-treaters in five Connecticut neighborhoods two bowls to choose from: one with lollipops or fruit candy and one with inexpensive Halloween-themed trinkets. About half the kids skipped the sweet stuff and took a toy instead. So you may want to consider making the switch at your house too, why not?

Here are some healthier alternatives you may want to consider for this Halloween:


  • sugar-free lollipops
  • fruit
  • raisins
  • granola bars
  • popcorn
  • trail mix
  • cheese sticks


  • plastic vampire teeth
  • glow-in-the dark stickers
  • temporary tattoos
  • spider rings
  • Halloween pencils
  • crayons and stickers
  • mini yoyos

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
