13 Healthy Halloween Treats from a Dietitian

Looking to balance some of the Halloween trick-or-treats this holiday season? Feel free to keep the spooktacular theme going while still enjoying some fun and festive foods that still hit all of the nutrition marks. 

The goal of nutrition during this time of year is to avoid feeling restricted and find enjoyment in balance. You can still have candy or baked goods, but let them exist alongside healthy snacks that can be just as fun. Keeping this mindset can be especially powerful for helping to keep sugar intake in control without leading to any sense of restriction. This makes it easier to make a healthier choice and still enjoy it. 

Here’s a roundup of some easy and healthy Halloween inspired treats that our online dietitians love. Keep them on hand or whip them up as needed to keep your mindset strong.
