Non-Candy Treats to Pass Out this Halloween

Trick-or-treatersHalloween season is here, and we can’t wait! Halloween decorations, fun and spooky costumes, trick-or-treating, we love it all. But, as we all know, sugary Halloween candy can have a very negative impact on the body, especially in kids. Not only is your child’s overall health affected, but his or her dental health is, too. Sugar causes tooth decay, dental cavities, and more.

Fun Non-Candy Alternatives to Halloween Candy 

Our dentist, Dr. Behnaz Raisdana recommends ditching sugary Halloween candy and substituting it with fun, non-candy alternatives. Below are a few fun ideas that all trick-or-treaters will enjoy:

  • Halloween stickers
  • Bubbles
  • Glow sticks
  • Clementine oranges
  • Mini Slinkies
  • Vampire's teeth
  • Halloween pencils or erasers
  • Mini tubes of Play-Doh
  • Hairclips or barrettes
  • Matchbox cars
  • Small activity books
  • Noisemakers and whistles
  • Bouncy balls
  • Skull or spider rings

Halloween doesn’t have to be scary for your teeth! There are plenty of healthy, cost-effective ways to enjoy Halloween without buying sugary candy in bulk. Kids in your neighborhood will enjoy the unique, creative treats and their parents will thank you for skipping the sugar!

No matter how you choose to celebrate this spooky holiday, we here at Auburn Family Dental would like to wish you a safe and fun Halloween! To make an appointment here at our Wichita, KS family dental office, please contact Auburn Family Dental today.
