This is a list of healthier alternatives to the regular Halloween candy that is full of toxins. Some of these healthy Halloween treats are not candy at all, just fun ideas for things to pass out at Halloween. Many of these are standard birthday party favors that also work as Halloween treats.

HALOWEEN TREATS THAT ARE BETTER THAN CANDY BUT MIGHT END UP IN OUR LANDFILLS FOREVER.
I prefer choosing items that are not cheap plastic that will not end up in the landfill. I tried to pick items that were stainless steel vs plastic. But items like the mini birthday bubbles are probably not the best as far as items that will end up in our landfills forever. I included better options above if I could find them.
- Tiny Birthday Bubbles
- Skeleton Bone Pens – these I think are plastic so prob not the best choice.
- Halloween Bulk Party Favor Packs like this one are economical but they include rubber ducks which we know are full of toxins.
- Halloween Stamps
- LED light up rings
- Glow Bracelets
- Spooky Spider Rings
RAN OUT OF TIME TO GO SHOPPING?
Glad to know I’m not that only one who lets things sneak up on me! I have to tell you that I love love love grocery delivery sometimes. It saves my energy for other tasks like homeschooling and cleaning and this blog! I’m a nicer mom when I don’t have to spend an entire day’s energy grocery shopping and loading and unloading etc. Here are a few of my favorites….
- Instacart (Free 14 Day Trial)
- Shipt (Save $50 on annual membership) I use this one for Target.
- Walmart Grocery Delivery (I have only used Pickup. I honestly don’t use Walmart as much anymore).
- Does your local grocery store deliver? Ours has pickup and our store is amazing! We love it!
