Dr. Mindy Pelz shares some fun recipes and ideas for healthier swaps this Halloween!

5 healthier alternatives to Halloween candy:

Organic LMNT Gummies

You can make LMNT flavored gummies using different silicon trays that are in the shapes of spiders and worms!

Instructions: Mix a packet of LMNT with 1/2 cup of water and 1.5 tablespoons of Gelatin. Mix together, bring to a boil, pour into trays, and let sit in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours!

Fruit Leather

You can find organic, natural, fruit leather that comes in a variety of flavors at your local health store or on Thrive Market!

Honey Sticks

The local farmer’s market almost always has the honey stand and they normally have honey sticks!  If you can find them local to your area, that would be best!

Chocolate Covered Dates

This is one of our all-time favorite snacks!  I like to take pitted dates, place them into a silicone ice cube tray, and cover them with melted Lily’s milk chocolate.  One tip when making – sprinkle sea salt on top, and then place the dates in the freezer for an hour.

Lily’s Peanut Butter Cups

Lily’s makes a delicious peanut butter cup that is organic and low sugar.  We like to order in bulk through Thrive Market for our office, and this is a great alternative to the Reese’s Peanut Buttercup.

Dr. Mindy has a ton of other recipes on her website that you can dig through to find some creative things to give to your kids this Halloween!

Hallmark Channel’s Debbie Matenopoulos on Halloween

3 DIY Trick-or-Treats Bags for Your Littles

The third major holiday in the USA since COVID-19 started is quickly approaching.  Depending on where you are in the country, Halloween may just be hypothetical this year. Treats without tricks. Because make no mistake about it: even if kids cannot (or at least, are highly advised not to) trick or treat this year, it doesn’t mean they can’t have the magic of Halloween!

Thanks to the brilliant mind of the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show and our client Debbie Matenopolous puts a whole new spin on Halloween this year! DIY is all the rage these days, so why not apply it to all Hallow’s Eve and create the magic at home?

Check out these 3 DIY ideas to circumvent traditional trick-or-treating, and keep you, your family, and your neighbors safe while still enjoying the fun this holiday has to offer.  Debbie plans on putting together some treats with her daughter and delivering them to her neighbors front doorsteps!

1. Spooky Glove – we all have plenty of these latex gloves laying around – easy to fill with packaged candy.  All you need is see-through gloves, spider rings, candy to fill it with, and a bow!

2. Toilet Paper Roll Mummy – You can use toilet paper rolls, paper towel rolls (cut up), or wrapping paper rolls for this easy to make creative ghost candy roll.  Color the top of the roll with a black marker and then place googly eyes near the top. With white medical tape wrap each roll completely from the bottom up, leaving the eyes to peek through.  Fill with your favorite wrapped candy!

3. Pumpkin Tissue Paper Pouches – Take one piece of orange tissue paper and cut it in half.  Place candy in the center and form around it to look like a pumpkin.  Use florist green tape to make the stem!  Check out this fun how-to DIY Video from Factory Direct Craft!
