These are some great alternative suggestions that should make us all think before we just grab whatever to pass out; however, they are costly. There are more inexpensive treats like bags of pretzels.
Yet, the snack-size of the candy does offer us the opportunity to teach our children about portion control. That's where the parents come in. As a parent, I'm already assuming the responsibility of making sure my children don't overindulge while allowing them to enjoy all the festivities of the holiday.
If you feel better about handing out organic earth balls and can afford to do so -- go for it; but, the bottom line is that just re-thinking a tad without going overboard can help with healthier choices.
Happy Halloween all!
