Health Tip: Dish Up Healthier Halloween Goodies

(HealthDay News) -- Young trick-or-treaters typically are overloaded with candy, but you don't have to jump on the candy bandwagon.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics suggests these healthier Halloween options:

  • Vitamin C-packed, 100 percent-fruit fruit chews.
  • Trans fat-free animal crackers or some sugar-free gum.
  • Small juice boxes with 100 percent fruit juice.
  • Small cups of low-fat pudding.
  • Halloween stickers, temporary tattoos, pencils or other non-food goodies.
