Halloween is here yay!! I just updated this from my last years blog and reposted it. I wanted to share and list all of the nondairy cruelty-free vegan & vegetarian candies that I knew of for all of you guys and also offer healthy alternatives, to that huge pile of candy your children are bringing home. Candy is great but we want our kids to grow up strong and healthy and we want to be healthy too. Whole foods are always the best option & any refined sugar in any name is sugar.
Some parents take their bags right away from their kids never to be seen again (this is what would happen to me and my sister) this isn't a good option because kids resent that and I still wonder where the hell my Halloween candy went mom!!!
Few alternatives to taking candy away from babies are:
A swap have a basket filled with all their candy & then swap with another basket of toys (make it enticing) available so when they come home you can trade, just make sure it's equal or more volume then their bag of candy.
Offer healthy alternatives
This is my favorite what about offering delicious alternatives like banana ice cream? Or my Glowey Green Smoothie. Would you like to give me 10 of your pieces of candy in trade?
Below are some awesome options from some amazing bloggers:
Frankenstein Brown Rice Krispie Treats
When I saw these I was feeling like a little kid again, I want! These are sure to impress anyone! Vegan & Gluten Free too? What is there not to love about these?
GoGo squeeZ Mummy Pouches
Last night I sat packing some healthy candy bags for my sister-in-laws daycare & these were included, WHY didn't I think of this? How cute!!!
$$$ cash is king

This is by far my most popular and on demand monthly service. When I transitioned to a healthier diet, I remember having a full-on panic attack in the grocery store, because there were so many unhealthy options and why did everything have so many ingredients? Going to a restaurant wasn't any easier.
This service is a concierge service you message me a picture of your plate, a recipe, a menu option, or something you are considering buying at the grocery store and ask me if it's healthy, or if you should you change anything? I get back to you within 24 hours depending on your urgency with an answer and a healthy alternative if the one you have sent me is not healthy.
