Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

Healthy Halloween

Helping your children to maintain a healthy low or no-sugar diet on Halloween is virtually impossible without forbidding trick-or-treating which no parent in America wants to do. Below are some resources and tips for helping make this tricky holiday a little easier — including a creative resource for kids on Halloween with special diets.

Jon Zornow has just created a website called No Trick Treats to help kids and families with dietary restrictions for this tricky holiday. On his site, homes giving out specialty candy can mark themselves on a map for use by trick-or-treaters looking for that type of candy.  As the word spreads, this resource can take the stress off trick-or-treating and Halloween can become a healthy holiday.

Also check out the Halloween Episode of the Chef and the Plant-Based Dietitian as they provide healthier alternatives to traditional Halloween trick-or-treating. In addition to these great tips, they walk us through some simple steps to make a Halloween favorite with a twist – raw, sugar-free caramel apples!

With a little planning and creativity everyone can enjoy Halloween!
