Healthy Halloween Treats (affordable & on Amazon prime!)

High fructose corn syrup, artificial dyes, hydrogenated oils… Halloween can be a scary time for Natural Mamas! ?

But don’t despair! Thanks to the real food movement, there are plenty of healthy Halloween treats on the market! (And many are available on Amazon Prime for last minute shoppers like me. ?)

Healthy Halloween Treats Don’t Have to Be Pricey?

While we’d all love to give away organic, fair trade, non-GMO, low-cadmium chocolate bars sweetened with organic coconut nectar crystals fresh from the palm, we don’t want to spend $3.00 per kid! Best to save those special treats for mama ?and find more affordable treat options, especially if you’re expecting tons of Trick-or-Treaters!

Healthy Halloween Treats Don’t Have to be Hard to Find…

Most grocery stores don’t have large selections of healthy Halloween treats. Sure, Whole Foods does, but they tend to be cost prohibitive. (Again, save the special treats for mama.) I also don’t like going from store to store searching for options when I can order them from the comfort of my own home (hello, Amazon Prime!). Plus, I find much better deals online than I find in most health food stores.

? Best Healthy Halloween Treats ?

Without further adieu, here are my top recommendations for affordable and healthy Halloween treats ranked by price and all are available on Amazon Prime.

  1. I don’t know if you’ve heard about it, but there’s also the Teal Pumpkin Project that exists to help promote safer and healthier ways to do Halloween. Basically, you paint a pumpkin teal to advertise that you will be handing out non-food treats or allergy free eatable treats. You can also display a poster on your door and hand out flyers if you want to spread this movement that started in 2014.

    Here’s the link for more info :

  2. Thanks for the great ideas!

  3. As a note to any Costco members, Stretch Island fruit leathers are available there, in bulk!
