20 Non-Candy Halloween Treats

Sharing is caring!

Halloween can be difficult for gluten-free kids and others with food allergies and sensitivities. 

The Teal Pumpkin Project organized by FARE seeks to make it easy for these kids to celebrate Halloween safely! 

It’s easy to participate—just stock up on some non-candy Halloween treats to give away.  This can either be in addition to (or instead of) regular Halloween candy. 

Then paint a pumpkin teal and set it out letting families with dietary restrictions know that your house is giving away non-candy Halloween treats.

Nice ideas! When I was a kid I remembered I loved getting trinkets like this because I didn’t like candy very much and my parents wouldn’t let me eat much candy anyway.

A big non-candy thank you! The thought of a huge haul of sugar is giving me a headache as we speak!!

Yes! Sometimes you just need to avoid the sugar high!

Great ideas! I know my siblings would much prefer fun things over candy. The toys last longer and can be used over and over again!

Great ideas! We always end up with a ton of leftover Halloween candy that I don't want to feed to my kid. These would certainly be healthy alternatives for leftovers after the holiday.

I love these ideas. We don't eat a lot of candy in our house so these ideas are so helpful . Thanks for sharing!
