Tricks for Treats: Giving Healthy Treats on Halloween Night

As a parent, do you ever worry about your child coming home with a bag full of unhealthy, harmful treats on Halloween night that can destroy your child’s smile? If so, why not be the neighbor who gives out teeth-healthy treats on Halloween to help ease other parents’ worries as well?

To help you reward the children with healthy yet delicious treats this Halloween, we have provided the following suggestions:

• Dark chocolate
• Nuts
• Sugar-free candy
• Sugar-free gum
• Sugar-free suckers
• Granola bars
• Breakfast bars
• Popcorn
• Pretzels
• Apples

It’s important that you refrain from handing out hard, sticky, and sour candy, no matter which treats you decide to give. These treats are extremely harmful to your smile because they tend to cling to your teeth, produce acid, and form tooth decay. So, help your neighborhood friends maintain a strong and healthy smile by passing out treats that are healthy for the teeth.

If you would like to pass out prizes rather than treats, you can try giving out water bottles, toothbrushes, temporary tattoos, puzzles, and small games to the little trick-or-treaters.
