3 Sugar-Free Alternatives to Hand Out to Trick Or Treaters This Year

Dental Cleanings And Exams Webster, TXWith so many kids that have food and nut allergies these days, it can be hard to keep up. If you want to make sure that everyone feels included and happy when they come to trick or treat at your house, why not consider handing out some sugar-free treats instead? Not only are sugar-free treats better for their diet but they’re better for their oral teeth as well. Plus, you may have their parents knocking on your door thinking you later on when they don’t have to take them to the dentist. Let’s take a closer look at a few things you can hand out to your neighbors instead of candy this Halloween.


Who doesn’t love to play with Play-Doh? The great thing about Play-Doh is that you can find large bags of small containers of Play-Doh either online or at your local big-box store, so you don’t have to spend a fortune. You’ll be surprised to see just how excited your neighbor kids are when they find out that you’re handing out this fun toy that kids of all ages love.

Stickers and Pencils

Another fun alternative to candy is Halloween stickers and pencils. You can usually buy bulk packs of these things at the local dollar store so that you won’t have to spend a lot of money. And, it will give the kids something fun and festive to take to school the next day.


If you still want to hand out something edible to your trick or treaters, but you want it to be healthy, consider buying pre-packaged apple slices. Apples are something that most people don’t have an allergy to, and they are a great way for kids to naturally clean their teeth. Plus, because they are high in Vitamin C, you now that you will be helping give their body’s some nutrition.
