This Halloween, skip the sugar but not the treats

Treats are essential to the spirit of Halloween, but when you're surrounded by candied apples, pumpkin cookies and grocery store shelves lined with fun-sized chocolate bars, it's easy to overindulge. If you'd rather avoid sugar-overload this year, try out a few healthy but festive options.

If you're throwing a Halloween party, provide your guests some healthy foods, like pumpkin cupcakes made with applesauce instead of vegetable oil. Put out bowls of bright orange baby carrots and dip for guests to nosh on. You could even have a pumpkin-carving contest and bake the pumpkin seeds with a little olive oil and salt - you'll get a healthy snack and a jack o'lantern out of it.

Another way to make Halloween less cavity-inducing is to provide guests with party favors instead of bowls of sweets. Give all your guests a mask at the door and hand out goodie bags full of orange glow sticks, vampire fangs, fake eyeballs or mugs with Halloween designs.

If you're too tempted to dip into the stash for your trick-or-treaters, do the same for them and hand out goodies you can buy in bulk from the dollar store, like plastic spiders or orange toothbrushes!ADNFCR-2319-ID-19390509-ADNFCR
