Candy is so yummy right? It’s filled with additives, chemicals, preservatives, and let’s not forget, lots and lots of processed sugars! Most of today’s diseases and illnesses can be linked to processed foods and sugar itself. And this doesn’t even touch on the topic of child slavery being used to make your Halloween candy. Does candy still sound appetizing?
Skip the candy this year, and go for something healthier and greener. If you must hand things out, consider making popcorn balls or some other homemade item. Dried fruit also makes a great alternative to candy. And if that doesn’t float your boat, grab a 5lb bag of organic lollipops to hand out to the neighborhood or give your own kids.
